There is something alluring about art that exists off the canvas. Illustration on recycled, reclaimed, and natural materials feels approachable and tangible. And whether the art commands attention from the decaying paper, splintering wood, and corrosive metal or assimilates and weaves into the material, it is the history and texture of the material, the beautiful layer of story, that pulls. In honor of Earth Day, we hope you enjoy some striking pieces on paper, reclaimed wood, and recycled silk. Reuse. Recycle. Reinvent.
