Published 1 month ago

Barbara Franc is a London-based artist who creates intricate sculptures of animals using scrap metal and discarded items. The artist says she has always been fascinated by the shapes and sculptural forms of animals, and adds that they’re a never-ending source of inspiration to her. To capture the feeling of movement and presence in her sculpture, Barbara uses wire and other materials in a way that suggests drawing in three dimensions. “This allows me greater freedom to add changes whenever I want during the construction to keep the feeling fluid and to reflect the diversity of movement and form,” explains the artist.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
