Something as little as a button can create mesmerizing sculptures, as shown by Miami-based artist Augusto Esquivel. These art pieces are eye-catching, as they are formed by millions of colored buttons suspended in the air. Using fastener and fishing line, Esquivel creates life-size designs.
The collection of little plastic piece gives life to extraordinary replicas of objects like fire extinguishers, horns, pianos, stools, candy balls and even a self-portrait of the artist. The creator declares, "Like an atom in a molecule, each button serves and shapes the whole." Each button is essential to keep the whole design together. Also, even though each button is different, together they form a unity, making these sculptures relevant to understand concepts of unity and teamwork.
Augusto Esquivel found art and beauty in grandmothers' richest treasures: sewing boxes.
