Junk Mail Never Looked So Good


Sandhi Schimmel Gold is a recycling genius and an artist on top of that.  She turns every day junk mail into the most amazing art!

She hand cuts, sorts and manipulates thousands of pieces; images and text to assemble a mosaic portrait.


I hope you can see the detail but here is a tighter picture to show up close just how detailed these are.....


She does custom portraits too, I know what I want for Christmas, honey are you reading this? ;)

She is probably the one person who actually gets excited by her junk mail each day.

Can she make a mosaic of my junk mail and my face? I guess she can.
