Publisher Comments:

From Phil Hansen, renowned multimedia artist whose TED Talk “Embrace the Shake” is inspiring individuals around the world to overcome their limitations and express themselves creatively, comes this entertaining and witty guide to turning everyday objects into art. Using items that include a piece of toast, a plastic bag, or even just your own fingerprints, this fun and captivating guide will inspire you to get creative.

Whether you want to jumpstart, rediscover or further your creative pursuits, this book will help you build your creative muscles by experimenting with the unexpected. Once you tattoo a banana, print on marshmallows, or mold a Mona Lisa sugar cookie, you'll definitely be curious about what else is possible.

 

Synopsis:

Get ready to get creative…

Commercial artist and YouTube sensation Phil Hansen is a big fan of making art out of everyday objects. His popular works are made from matchsticks, tire tracks, peanut butter, dollar bills, and paint on his own torso. Now he shares his wildly creative approach, and shows us all how to make art anywhere, anytime. Part handbook and part manifesto, this engaging, inspiring, and downright entertaining book takes us inside the mind of a groundbreaking artist—and encourages us to create, reimagine, and make something out of (almost) nothing.
