Edouard Martinet is a gifted sculptor who uses cast-off pieces of bicycles, automobiles, and typewriters to make incredibly detailed and physiologically accurate insects. Edouard’s pieces are not welded or glued together in any way, instead, each part is meticulously attached with screws, giving the whole piece a vintage steampunk look. Unlike most sculptures made of recycled objects, Martinet’s pieces do not merely approximate the look of the insect upon which they were based. His sculptures look exactly like the insects themselves. To have a closer look at his work, you can check out his ongoing exhibition at Sladmore Contemporary in London which will be open until the end of January 2014.
