If you are an art enthusiast then you will undoubtedly love the work of Kirk Gilliam. Exhibiting his interesting found-art sculptures at Nature’s Express in San Diego, a restaurant known for cutting-edge, plant-based organic food, the artist shows his concern for the environment. The beautiful pieces of art are made by assembling together things like assembled plumbing gizmos, conduit, rollerblade wheels, nozzles and wood.
Dubbed as “3D Rorschach Tests,” his creations truly depict the green revolution that the artist is trying to bring from his work. His humanoid sculpture placed at a corner in the restaurant would certainly be the first thing you would notice when you walk in. The Visitor from Planet Toast also participated at the San Diego Fair for recycled art this year, where it won the first prize. The H. pylori, another Gilliam creation for which he derived inspiration from his own dog, is designed from hand-carved wood and recycled materials that include plumbing parts, electrical materials and various found objects. Our planet needs a few more artists like him.
