Malena Valcarcel Sculptures recycled books

Malena Valcarcel  is a paper artist and tell her own stories using books as her canvases.

“I create these sculptures from books that have been thrown away for one reason or another. Sometimes I rescue them from refuse bins, secondhand shops that can’t move them, and even libraries that incinerate unwanted or damaged books to make room for new ones. In fact, I have developed such a reputationfor repurposing books that friends bring me books they no longer want or need.
I give them new lives as beautiful, incredibly unique works of art.

I can be inspired by a book I read, or maybe a specific passage of that book can inspire me to create a Book Sculpture.
My art allows you to look at books in an entirely new light and may even inspire more visually-inclined people to start reading again”.
