Explore Artist Painting, Library Books and more!

Il pittore e illustratore Mike Stilkey è un accanito topo di biblioteca, ma di un genere molto particolare. Nelle biblioteche va a cercare vecchi romanzi dimenticati, destinati ad essere gettati nella spazzatura, e li salva dando loro una stupefacente seconda vita: diventano le tele per le  sue incredibili opere d'arte.

Los Angeles-based painter Mike Stilkey re-uses books that he salvages from library dumpsters as sculptural canvases.

I would love to have a personal library!

Not sure how I feel about the baby-blue shelves. I guess I want bookshelves to be warm, dark, Oxford-y colors. But I love the chandelier and the use of space here. And the ladder.in a just world every library would have, and need, a ladder.

Forgotten, neglected and dumped. Artist Mike Stilkey uses old books that he reclaimed from library trash heaps as a canvas for his paintings. A great way to create something unique and give those old books a second use.
