Indiana artist and sculptor Gabriel Dishaw has built an awesome Star Wars Darth Vader helmet completely out of recycled typewriter, adding machine and computer parts. It is available to purchase online at Etsy.
My passion for Star Wars and one of the baddest villain of all time has carried over to my upcycled art. Using found objects from typewriters, adding machines and old computers, I take the items people no longer have use for and I carefully disassembling these items and then reassemble these together using metal wire creating my Junk Art.
I begin each sculpture with an idea of how can I take these found pieces of useless metal and insignificant objects and create something that everyone can understand and relate to. I find myself looking at ordinary mechanical items to see how I could turn that something, into something else not originally intended for that use.
