Lucien Shapiro’s urban obsession

Lucien Shapiro uses found objects, trash, and raw materials to create ornate masks, armor, and weapons. His work exemplifies the relation between life and death and our legacy as a culture as it draws comparison between our waste and artifacts from ancient cultures. The comparison is fascinating!
