Originality is rare these days in the art world but we’re pleased to report that we’ve stumbled upon an artist whose work is both innovative and modern. Matt Bilfield, California based artist, won us over with this incredible three-dimensional piece “Peggy,” a brilliant and ambitious interpretation of a painting by famous artist Roy Lichtenstein. The mammoth work – it’s seven feet wide and three feet tall – is comprised of 2788 hand cut, sanded, and painted dowels that where then assembled together to recreate Lichtenstein’s image. The result is a cross between a graphic art image, sculpture, and installation which offers the viewer a different experience from every angle.
