Dalton Ghetti

28 Dec

Dalton Ghetti is a Brazilian artist who has been playing with knives since the age of 9. Since then he has picked up a chisel and a hammer and has become a master of turning discarded objects into art. He recycles pencils he finds in the street and, often with just a sewing needle, gives them a second existence. By carving tiny figures into the graphite, he draws attention to the fine details. “Small is beautiful” he states.

You can’t buy Ghetti’s pieces but you can see more examples of his work at:
