Orangutan 2

Mixed Media

Height: 25cm Width: 15cm Depth: 10cm

DVD shards (over 30 discs used)
Wire mesh frame
Super Sculpy
Hot glue
Black and chrome paint
2 weeks work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural fur pattern. The face is moulded with Super Sculpy, baked and painted.

My name is Sean E Avery and I'm an artist. I build sculptures, I'm a writer-illustrator of children's picture books and I'm a graphic designer. It's awesome.

My sculptures are all constructed with recycled materials — old CDs, computer hard drives etc, so I classify my work as "sustainable art". They're a lot of fun to make, but they take an extremely long time to finish, so I don't do a lot of them.

My first book, All Monkeys Love Bananas www.fremantlepress.com.au/book…, was released in March, 2012. You can read it here if you'd like: SEANEAVERY.COM/section/272000_…

Check out my stuff, drop me a line if you have any questions!

All the best,
Sean

Your art is so very beautiful and creative! It's inspired me to want to learn how to do these kinds of creations myself! What made you ever decide to create your first sculpture with the CD shards? They're amazing!

Keep up the great work! X3 *Le ad's to watch list*
