Gabriel Dishaw has a way with recycled materials.
Specializing in upcycled art and sculpture, he combines items like metals and discarded electronic components and assembles them into quite imaginative works. Dated technology like typewriters, computers, miscellaneous keys and other machine parts are brought to life as mechanical displays.
Utilizing cast off pieces from no longer needed objects allows the artist to create masterful pieces without attributing to landfill waste.
One of his works, the Star Wars Series, is a collection of sculptures that are recycled replications of characters from the saga. Fans of the classic films will surely appreciate these original reproduction models.
He has produced many C3PO and many Darth Vadar renditions.
This particular Darth Vader showcases the famous name on the helmet, cleverly spelled out with keyboard keys.
