French artist Edouard Martinet creates stunning sculptures of insects, reptiles, fishes and birds from pieces of scrap metal and rubbish collected from flea markets and car boot sales. Martinet doesn’t weld the metals together, choosing instead to use small screws, and spends about a month on each sculpture, often working on two or three pieces at the same time. Some pieces can take years; the most recent one took him seventeen years while he was searching for the one final perfect component.

Edouard Martinet became fascinated with insects at the age of ten when a teacher introduced him to these tiny creatures – a fascination that grew for the last 40 years into an obsession culminating into a craft of which Martinet is the undisputed master.
