Dog Named Lucy Becomes Fine Art With Unlikely Medium

Anyone who can elevate the cause of the dog is considered to be a hero here at BaxterBoo. Texas-based artist Ali Golzad is a double hero by creating a highly-detailed portrait of a dog and doing so with recycled corrugated cardboard.

“Lucy,” is an amazing piece that was commissioned as an anniversary present. It is part of Golzad’s “Recycled Art” series.

Inspiration

Golzad explains his unique concept: "Over the years I have developed my own technique using various mediums. Aside from my formal graphic design training and time spent as a Creative Director you could say I am a self-taught artist. My urge to create while still caring for our planet enabled me to look at ordinary objects in a new light and transform these commonly-discarded materials into something meaningful."

Art with heart

The artist has created a number of projects with recycled cardboard including a touching series called “Invisible People” to bring awareness to the plight of displaced children.

We commend Mr. Golzad for his thoughtful artistry that makes a difference for the arts, for children and for the planet.
