Who would have thought that matchsticks and art would match? See what I did there? And you should see what Scottish artist David Mach did with these match sticks. He makes insane sculptures out of them. Check it out after the break.
David Mach’s style of found art is truly tremendous. One of his current projects is composed of arranging colored match sticks to form stunning sculptures full of detail. He first creates a mold then sticks each match stick one at a time. The tedious and time consuming process result in vibrantly colored, flammable faces of animals and people including Elvis Presley, Che Guevarra, Charlie Chaplin, and Marilyn Monroe.
One time, he accidentally set fire to one of his match stick creations and it has been reported that he now often sets his other pieces on fire during his shows as performance art. And these are considered his smaller pieces, he has also created huge sculptures using wire hangers and some permanent public pieces made out of bricks. More of David Mach’s work can be found on his website.
We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
