Paul Villinski Art

You may be thinking that I have a strange fascination with Gossip Girl but really....I don't.  Okay, maybe a little, but between the fashion and the interior design, it's "creative crack" for me.  I'm on the constant search for creative inspiration.  I have this need to create....

Anyway, I was watching one night & saw the most amazing butterfly wall behind Serena's (Blake Lively) bed from her room at Blair's house. I had to do some digging and find out more about it.  I have been searching since that episode and didn't have a lot of luck but today I finally found some info on the symphony of butterflies that covered the wall so beautifully.

Yes, I have become very passionate about these lovely creatures.  The man behind the butterflies is Paul Villinski.  He is an artist that makes them from old records, paper....even crushed beer cans off the streets of New York.  I appreciate his use of natural & found objects, the re-purposing of items once discarded.  I'm amazed at how delicate and fluid they look when installed on a wall.  


This is where I first spotted them:

There's a sort of madness to his artwork.  I gravitate to artwork that is a little chaotic, messy, but visually stunning.  What do you think about it?
