About this item: Recycling a variety of materials, Armando Ramírez depicts a surfo riding a sheet metal wave. A sparkplug forms the body and textured wire becomes arms and legs. The surfer wears baggie shorts made of metal screen while die cut scraps form the head and feet. Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present. – Components may vary slightly in size and form – Features a rustic, rugged finish About our Artist: Born in a Mexican town famed for its traditional artistry, Armando Ramirez dreamed of creating something new. ‘As a child I enjoyed inventing toys, and soon yearned to create a unique style of art. Environmentally enamored, I now transform recycled goods. I began to craft figures from scrap and discarded mechanical parts, mostly from cars and bicycles. Thanks to the creativity that God gave me, today I have an enjoyable and better way of life.’Size: 7.75″ H x 6.75″ W x 4.7″ D
