Artillery-Inspired Antiques

Los Angeles, United States-based artist Krystopher Sapp finds in art and war a fascinating source of inspiration. This art work is intriguing and mysterious, as Sapp uses historic guns and antiques to create a kind of artistic aesthetic that makes war looks appealing.

Entitled ‘When a Good Man Goes to War,’ this series consists of a collection of pieces that ranges from ornamented weaponry to surreal war sculptures beautifully framed. Sapp used real guns such as a Springfield rifle or .44 caliber handgun and decorated them with different elements, giving each weapon a whole new meaning. 

Even though war imagery and guns are sensitive topics, there is still a beauty and art in the sculptures by Krystopher Sapp. His work is exhibited in the La Luz de Jesus gallery, Los Angeles until the 29th of January.
