A Grasshopper by Martinet

by Edouard Martinet (born France 1961)

2012

This anatomically precise sculpture is individually and meticulously assembled from a huge array of found objects including car, motorbike and bicycle parts; each of the elements carefully selected to best portray the character and attitude of the creature. The result is an astonishingly lifelike and unique, contemporary animalier sculpture.

Martinet graduated in 1988 from ESAG in Paris and teaches art at L'Institut des Arts Appliqué in Rennes
