The Up-cycled Art of Gabriel Dishaw

Working with metal and mechanical objects has been a passion of Gabriel Dishaw since his early teens. Eventually developing into an art practice and philosophy surrounding the up-cycling of discarded electronic and mechanical 'junk', Dishaw finds an outlet for his creative expression that, according to him "both helps me and the environment".

Sourcing found objects from abandoned typewriters, adding machines and old computers, Dishaw painstakingly assembles his creations, wrapping and stitching the items together using metal wire.

According to his artist statement "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."
