The man who blows life into junk metal

By Guido Trombetta on 8:09 AM , ,


Who is Edouard Martinet? In my humble opinion he's a genius...
He is a French artist that creates metal animal sculptures using found materials which are fixed without welding. Edouard carefully selects his raw materials found in brocantes and junk yards. The finished pieces achieving a life of their own.
As usual I've chosen to show you his works that are related to water (in particulat his collection "Frogs and Fishes"), but you really have to visit his site and see all of his other masterpieces (insects, ostrichs and more). It really worths a visit, Edouard creativity will marvel you..








UPDATE: new sculptures in this post "Edouard Martinet keeps blowing life into junk metal"

    The detail of these wonderful pieces is just mind-blowing. I'm having a hard time figuring out how these were conceptualized from just looking at the abstract materials that were used. These are brilliant! Simply brilliant!
