It doesn't take a trained eye to see that this is some fine portraiture, but look a little closer. These pieces are mosaics, but instead of using tiles innovative artist Cliff Maynard uses- get this- roaches from joints as the tiles. Each piece uses countless joint remains saved by Mr. Maynard and his friends and can take over 100 hours to transform into a masterpiece.
The 38 year old tattooist began producing his weird and wonderful art more than 15 years ago, an art student inspired by ancient mosaics. These wonderful examples of high art don't come cheap. should you decide to invite one into your home be prepared to shell out at least $1000. With that you'll get something that will keep everyone talking.
Go HERE to check out more of Cliff's blunt work.
