Classical Sculptures Created With Cardboard And Packing Tape

Classical sculptors generally used hard materials like marble and bronze to create their masterpieces, but artist Dylan Shields has shown us that it’s not about the material you use, it’s how you use it, in his new series of classically inspired works which are made out of cardboard and packing tape.

Dylan may have gotten his start when the Amazon and Ebay packaging materials started piling up in his garage, but whatever the backstory his corrugated sculptures are quite stylish despite the low cost of materials.

His goal is to reflect classical artistic ideals in his works while using modern materials, and while these papercraft works may not stand the test of time like their marble predecessors they are a fitting tribute to the art of sculpture.
