Will Kurtz spends most of his days combing the streets of NYC for subjects. He shoots them with an iPhone and then makes these insane mixed-media sculptures. Kurtz utilizes discarded items, ranging from packing supplies to discarded newspaper, bringing his figures to life and reminding viewers that we are all (no matter how hard we try to avoid it) products of popular culture. The results are often humorous, and always timely. Check them out through February 18, 2012.
