The Love Of Art

A couple of weekends ago my son and I spent it at the the 4th Edmonton Expo. The Edmonton Expo has grow from 14,000 to a estimated 50,000 in those 4 short years. I don’t know about you but that is HUGE.

This year as I was making my way around the convention I came abound a display of a collage of some superhero toys. Toys smashed together to create something odd but amazing art work also.

I talked to Darren Havelock the creator/artist behind these pieces of art.

Darren said:

What these are, are model kits that I customize. These are commercial produced model kits that I buy and cut them up and break them down. Combine them with other things like dollar store items or Halloween items. To create fairly unique items. 

Darren went on to tell me that he created these pieces and others just for the love of the art. While everyone was trying to sell merchandise, Darren just wanted to show people his work.

You can hear more of my interview with Darren in my upcoming The Pop Culture Cafe Podcast later in the week.
