"Vita" 24x36, aluminum cans, nails, plywood


"Amor" 24x36, aluminum cans, nails, plywood
(more from this series coming soon)


yes, our art really is made out of aluminum cans!
(all from the comfort of our camper van)
here are the steps in our process:


COLLECT
garbage cans, recycling bins, friends, family,
strangers walking down the street & maybe even you
CLEAN
wash with soap and water to get rid of the scum,
mold, backwash, cigarette butts and bugs
CUT
top, bottom and down the side (& recycle the left over bits)
FLATTEN
muscle each can into a flat rectangle
PUNCH
selectively punch each disc, one at a time, using a proprietary tool
then punch each disc again for the nail hole
DRAW
measure grid and pencil in on plywood
(that we previously cut to size on a scary table saw)
HAMMER
place each disc in desired location
and pound into place using more proprietary tools

and to answer your #1 question:
they take a really, really, REALLY long time to make!

and to answer your #2 question:

Yes, Nemo is The Famous Artist, notorius for drawing perfect freehand circles! After 10 years of drawing circles nearly every single day, he is now transistioning into other art forms and has taken up the hobby of knitting.

We would like to thank our many art patrons, who supported us through the purchase of nearly 2000 Nemo drawings and paintings during the last decade. But you haven't seen the last of the perfect freehand circles just yet - so stay tuned!
