Usually when the word Art is used in conjunction with clothing we are talking Haute Couture. But not this time people! This time the art comes from the quarter bin at your local thrift store…
This is the artwork of Cuban art-duo Guerra De La Paz, made up of Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz.
From their website:
“Through common aesthetic, we create work with a universal message. Using recycled objects as our medium and the guidance of the unrelenting amounts of information that fuels today’s mass consciousness and it’s sobversice parallels. Allowing us to explore ways to reinvent historic themes and classic icons while still commenting on contemporary culture.”
Still with me? Good.
I chose a few pieces that I found particularly interesting for their use of dyed & recycled clothing that has been used to create interesting and thought provoking sculptures.
What do you think? Love it? Hate it? Already have a favorite?
