Art from Recycled Junk Mail by Sandhi Schimmel Gold

Believe it or not, this piece of artwork was created by the artist by hand-cutting and hand-fitting thousands of squares and shards of junk mail.

Sandhi Schimmel Gold studied mosaics in Turkey, glass in Venice and has applied this knowledge and experience to his her current work. Many of the artist's works are portraits but Sandhi has done some landscapes and other various works.

Sandhi's policy on the environment?

"Every little "tile" you see was once advertising ephemera, junk mail, a postcard or packaging. I save everything and upcycle this resource to create fine art. I also repurpose old canvas and frames. Why throw them in a land fill when they can be reclaimed and reused?"
