new artist lovin...

shawn smith... he uses hand dyed strips of wood to create sculptures that look pixilated...







































this is michael alm... i havent been able to find a lot of info on him but from what i gather he is concerned about endangered species... this side of his art is his take on protecting these animals. he creates synthetic taxidermied animals. he uses faux furs, clay, dyed feathers and wood.
