A lot of the time you come across art that is junk, but here, Tom Deininger’s pieces prove that not all junk art is trash. When he opened his studio near Fall River, MA in 1999, Deininger began sculpting. Throughout the years he has collected anything the average person would throw away, considering it valuable art creating material, not junk at all. His vision for the discarded rubbish was something completely different: to create sculptures – very large, amazingly painterly masterpieces.

Not only does Deininger sculpt but he also paints, does mixed media, and created a collection called Denim Seascapes in which he used different strips of blue jeans, rivets, and labels to create an ocean theme. I’m excited to see his new works for sale on Etsy and see what he comes up with next. To view more of Tom Deininger’s work you can like him on facebook and visit his website. His work shows us there is always a purpose for the insignificant materials we use, if we just get creative with it.
