It seems that everyone’s had a touch of Star Wars fever in the past couple of months, and French sculptor Alain Bellino is certainly no exception. The artist learned his craft thanks to his father who passed on his gilding and restauration skills, and later turned to a more artistic expression. He usually works on metal sculptures of skulls, skeletons and animals made from metal objects, but recently has been channelling The Force, with Darth Vader and R2D2 now also gracing his portfolio. The amazingly detailed sculptures have been made from repurposed metal and are nice to look at, even if you’re not a big sci fi fan. See Alain’s website for more of his work.
