Alex Queral’s Carved Phone Book Art

Alex Queral does these wonderful heads, carved out of phone books (then painted with acrylics). In his Artist’s Statement, he says: In carving and painting a head from a phone directory, I’m celebrating the individual lost in the anonymous list of thousands of names that describe the size of the community. In addition, I like the idea of creating something that is normally discarded every year into an object of longevity. See more of his work HERE.
