Lucy, A Highly Detailed Portrait of a Dog Made Using Recycled Cardboard

Lucy01-682x1024

Texas-based artist Ali Golzad created this highly detailed portrait of a do using recycled corrugated cardboard. “Lucy,” a piece commissioned for an anniversary present, is part of Golzad’s “Recycled Art” series.

Over the years I have developed my own technique using various mediums. Aside from my formal graphic design training and time spent as a Creative Director you could say I am a self taught artist. My urge to create while still caring for our planet enabled me to look at ordinary objects in a new light and transform these commonly discarded materials into something meaningful.

The artist has created a number of projects with the material, including various animals, prominent figures like Barack Obama and John Lennon and an “Invisible People” series created to shed light on displaced children.
