Item Description

Artwork Title: You Are What You Eat
Artist: Brian Murphy

All information was provided by the artist in their own words.

Materials: "Hyper Striper" artwork is about 3 ft. wide x 1 ft. tall and made of .5 in. Versatex (PVC). Found object, vintage food crates, vintage metal cans, steel set screws, misc. hardware.

Description: My striper is a nod to discarded material left everywhere. Dumpster diving is an art and I take these unwanted materials and upcycle them into something new. The bright green color is called Margherita so I guess you can wash it all down.
