Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Thanks to vanguard creators like Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, most of us now know that art does not exist on canvas, paper, or marble alone. Multimedia artist Phil Hansen has been delivering that message with a missionary zeal, creating art out of everything from soda, burger grease, karate chopped paint, matches, tricycle wheel imprints, and Starbucks cups. In his new book, he turns on the lights to creating new wonders with items we take for granted or never notice at all. A trade paperback and NOOK Book original.
