Here, I’d like to introduce another artist who uses recycled materials to create amazing artworks, that is Erika Iris Simmons. She is a self-taught artist who works with non-traditional media. Most of her materials have been discarded or donated at some point. Inspired by a philosopher’s description of how your spirit lives in your body, she started her way to create artworks by using unprepossessing common things. Erika Iris Simmons has made a number of portraits out of recycled cassette tapes, old film and reels, stopwatches and pieces of related pictures. She even carves on medley poker. Isn’t that crazy? and really amazing, I have to say. The following are some of her works, enjoy!
