Mikhail Gubin

"I have used objects found in Manhattan's urban core.  Usually plywood or parts from discarded furniture.  My intent is to gain awareness for the inadmissible disdain to the destiny of wood waste construction materials in big cities.  The City is like a huge caterpillar, which carries through itself hundreds of tons of wood.
I rummage through Manhattan's waste in search of the necessary materials for my artwork.
I take pleasure in the process of creation and enjoy the idea to give new birth to thrown out wooden things through my sculpture."
Mikhail Gubin 

 Ukraine-born Mikhail Gubin moved to America in 1989. He has exhibited widely Mikhail's works are always formed from complex elements jigsawed together, whether they be two or three dimensional works.
