Is it Art? is a series of books focusing on exciting contemporary art forms. From graffiti to junk sculptures and from urban street art to installations, Is it Art? offers young readers examples from each medium and tells the story behind their creation. The series also encourages discussion and suggests activities so that readers can try making their own art. So what is Junk Sculpture? Well, it's basically rubbish! Junk sculpture can be made from just about anything that has been thrown away, from coat hangers to Cadillacs. Some sculptors see junk as a fantastic source of otherwise expensive materials and a way of recycling and reusing the planet's resources. Others see junk as a way of making art contemporary and thought-provoking by using modern or unusual materials, rather than classic sculpting materials such as bronze or marble. Whatever your opinion, the sculptures in this book are guaranteed to get you thinking about the things we throw away.
