Anyone with a home office or a propensity for planning projects has that one drawer at home filled with boxes and boxes of paper clips and binder clips. Both have a wide variety of different uses around the home, from making wine glass markers to clamping cables. The versatility of these seemingly simple stationery items is endless. Pietro D’Angelo is an artist who understands this better than anyone.
D’Angelo is originally from Palermo, Italy but studied art in Bologna, and began his career using more stereotypical sculpting materials like stone and marble. However, as time passed, he found himself drawn to more unconventional materials. He finally found his tools of choice when he started using nothing more than plain paper clips, the very same ones found in every office, and wire. D’Angelo creates statuesque sculptures of sheer beauty. Take a look at some of his incredible pieces.
