Sean E Avery CD and DVD sculptures
Sean E Avery is a teacher, writer-illustrator, sculptor and designer born in South Africa; living in Perth, Western Australia.
Locally, he’s best known as the writer-illustrator of well-loved children’s picture books such as “All Monkeys Love Bananas”, “ Happy as a Hog Out of Mud” but internationally, he’s best known as a sculptor who uses CDs and DVDs to create breath-taking works of art that reside in galleries and private collections all around the world.
Sean uses kitchen scissors to cut the shapes he needs out of the CDs, then arranges each shard by colour and size. Next he hot glues the shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame (that is shaped by hand) to create a natural fur/feather pattern.
“My sculptures usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!"
