Crafty Art: portrait made from 9000 corks
Artists who can see art materials in every day things never cease to impress me. I do love a bit of upcycled art, especially on a grand scale. Artist Scott Gundersen conjures arty magic from a humble pile of regular old corks.
The artist took 50 hours and over 9000 corks to create a portrait of Grace, a woman who survived genocide in Rwanda, for the ArtPrize award.
In an example of upcycled art amazingness he sourced the corks from local restaurants and businesses. Each cork is naturally stained by the bottles rather than coloured to his requirements.
