When Edouard Martinet was 10, one of his teachers introduced his pupils to insects, but in a rather obsessive way. Subliminally, the fascination sunk in to the young French boy.
Fast-forward 40 years, and Martinet has become the art world’s virtuoso insectophile, transforming bits and pieces of cast-off junk culled from flea markets and car boot sales into exquisitely executed insect, fish and animal forms.
Go behind-the-scenes with Edouard Martinet as he uses nothing but screws to assemble his scrap metal creature sculptures. Photos of them can be found at SladmoreContemporary.com.
