French sculptor Edouard Martinet transforms everyday objects found in flea-markets and car boot sales into works of art.
The sculptor crafts astoundingly detailed and life-like sculptures of fish, birds and insects from pieces of discarded junk.
The former graphic designer-turned-sculptor has been doing this for the last twenty years, finding his materials at flea markets and car scrap yards, which range from rusted kitchenwares, typewriter keys, car lights, brakes, chains and other pieces of scrap.
From 1988 to 1992 he lived and worked in Paris as a graphic designer, and in 1990 started sculpting and staging exhibitions. From 1992 to 1995 he lived in Charente before moving to his current location in Rennes where he teaches art at L’Institut des Arts Appliques.
