Lana Del Rey
This recycled / junk art piece uses found objects to shape the face of pop-rock musician Lana Del Rey. Recycled art or “Junk Art” as Todd calls it, generally involves spotting something on the street and saving it to include later in his art. In her face is manufactured from pencils, canvas, ceramic tile, paint, glass, bottle caps and more can be found, when your eyes explore the details. The hair is crafted from a section of found copper. Todd first used sand paper to polish the metal until it looked shiney and new. Then with a hammer, he beat the copper plating into a phone book to arch each section of metal, to shape the curves in her hair. Hours of hand crafted assembly with a focus to bonding the fragile pieces together permanently. Gorilla, screws and bolts all under layers of Polycrylic.
