Tired Out: Delvoye Collection


Belgium artist and decorator Wim Delvoye is an internationally acclaimed, multi-faceted artist known for his use of peculiar mediums for expression. The talented Delvoye created a collection of amazing decorative tires titled "Pneu," which contains used car tires adorned with hand carving. The surface of each tire is a blank canvas for Delvoye to explore. He describes these series as an ironic "glocal" fashion. From the intricate patterns to the floral motifs, the craftsmanship is an allusion to the 19th century appreciation for decorative arts and furniture.
