Trash or in this case salvage art is becoming the next big thing. From our Dutch Friends at Dijkstijl Art from driftwood. Artist Marcel Dijker reuses beach driftwood into artistic schools of fish. The website is in Dutch, but via google translater.

Driftwood Artist Marcel Dijker / Dijk Style Dijker Marcel (1975) has a passion for the sea and the beach. As a child he was daily on the beach can be found on Texel, his birthplace. Marcel makes art of driftwood. For this eco-art he collects weathered materials from the sea, especially wood. The original form of the piece of wood is the basis of the artwork. This will be changed as little as possible. By combining wood with other natural beach finds such as shells, there is a natural work of art. Marcel is mainly fish.

The natural materials Marcel looking at all the beaches where it comes from at home and abroad. The works he subsequently makes going again around the world. So are his works in some beach houses on Bonaire (furnished and designed by Piet Boon), in a luxurious apartment in New York and include in a winter lodge in Lapland.

Marcel has this form of art itself own. Besides private supplies Marcel also works with companies that have a link with nature. Besides the collection are works commissioned by driftwood possible and there are complete collections to build up schools of fish.
