One of my tags is "the pleasure of cardboard". I use it for making quick maquettes, padding, packing, and floor protection when painting.
Artist Mark Langan creates on of a kind sculpture using cardboard as his medium. He uses the ready made textures of cardboard to create patterns both realistic and abstract with just matt knives, glue, and recycled cardboard.
Most sculptors would never think of his audience and collectors. With cardboard as his chosen material, Mark contacted corrugated manufacturers, packaging companies, recycling firms, green industries, organizations and related events. Many business have commissioned artwork. His sculpture currently adorns the boardrooms and lobbies of paper related firms throughout the U.S.
