Insect Sculptures Out of Found Objects by Mark Oliver

It's amazing what some artists and creative minds have been making with various objects and scraps they can get their hands on. These insect sculptures of a British artist are amazingly, beautifully made, so read on...you have to see them!

It must be difficult to think of what you can make with random bits and pieces of found objects, but British artist and illustrator Mark Oliver seems to have set his creative mind on making some of the most interesting and whimsical sculptures you may ever see.

His collection of these beautifully crafted critters is aptly named The Litter Bug Series. He describes his litter bug as “a creature whose instinctual and physical qualities have adapted so uniquely to the modern urban environment that it has rendered itself, by nature of camouflage, virtually invisible in it’s normal habitat.”

It’s also worth noting that each critter is named after the material Mark used to create them. It’s pretty obvious that “Time Fly” was made out of watch parts (giving it a nice steampunk look), but some, like “Frequency Moth,” will challenge you to think harder.
