One of a kind, mixed media fine art and steel sculptures handcrafted by Orange County artist, Erik M. Cunningham. The "M." stands for Mahershalalhashbaz.
"Vengeance," "Rejoice" and "Every Knee" (pictured above) are mixed media and steel sculptures with themes, based in scripture, and inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Each of these fine art sculptures were constructed entirely of "roadside salvage" materials like discarded twine, rusty metal bolts, washers, wire and other miscellaneous scraps, I collected during countless walks around my Orange County, CA home workshop.
When littered in the streets and on sidewalks, some might view the materials themselves as worthless debris, but to me they're priceless. Because, like many things in life, their true value lies not in what they used to be, but in what they can become.

I've been salvaging materials, but away from the art show scene in 2017. Check back soon for future Orange County showings.
