Back in 2010, after two decades of a successful career as a fashion designer, Israel-based multidisciplinary artist Nirit Levav decided to dedicate herself to her true passion: art.
In the last years, Levav is working mainly with recycled materials she collects: bicycle chains, motorcycle pistons, keys, light bulbs, watches, and more, from which she creates amazing artworks.
‘First of all, I collect different materials, mainly the kind people don’t want anymore. For them, it is garbage and for me – a treasure..’
In her ongoing series called ‘Unchained‘, she creates amazing life-size dog sculptures made out of recycled bicycle parts, mostly chains.
“My intention was to capture the dogs’ gentleness and sensitivity, each one and its own unique expressions, despite the use of scrap metal. Hope you’ll enjoy it. I love to make people smile through my art.”
