I’m obsessed with hand made crafts, not only they’re a great achievement for the artist, they’re also a beautiful display element that adds up to the living room or office. Benjamin Bullins from New Orleans is a great crafter and by using old materials, he combines them to create new art and they’re very well designed and very creative.
A lot of his talent comes from the combination of his studies, he studied graphics design, he’s a photographer and also had also worked in construction.
The work itself though not evident, reflects the culture of New Orleans and are mostly portrayed in his music instrumental crafts. I like his work as it is pretty simple, a hat, an instrument, a base, etc. and yet still manages to pull off something that looks very complex, turns out simplicity is complex. Anyway, for more of his work, check his website.
