John Waguespack’s upcycled home goods and fine art collection has created the perfect marriage of fantasy and simplicity.
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/25/2014 -- The Salvador's Garden home goods line is from the creative mind of John Waguespack. John is an artist based in San Francisco, California who has been painting and showing his work for the last 10 years.
John has always loved surrealism and Dali has been a huge inspiration for him. The original painting he created, My Salvador, became the animus for a series of paintings called Salvador’s Garden. Everything in this garden–the birds, flowers, and animals were transformations of the original portrait.
In 2013, John was introduced to an amazing textile made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. The beautiful snow white fabrics reminded him of that original Dali painting-the perfect medium on which to share this series. It was about transforming trash that would otherwise end up in landfill into something beautiful, and allowed him to bring this garden to life.
The fabrics are incredible to touch. The feel of satin, silk, chiffon, and cotton-it's hard to believe these are all made from plastic bottles! By removing these plastic bottles from our landfills, John and his team are helping to keep the planet from turning into a waste dump. This process takes what would be trash and upcycles it into something useful and beautiful. The bold graphic approach is the perfect marriage of fantasy and simplicity. The outcomes are useful, decorative, and celebrate the material-plus proudly made in the USA. This is John’s Salvador’s Garden, and the creator is excited to share it with all.
Salvador's Garden is now ready to go into production, but the project needs funding help. By supporting John’s Kickstarter campaign, the backers will help bring Salvador‘s Garden to life.
This project will only be funded if at least $25,000 is pledged by Sun, Jul 13 2014 12:09 AM +05:30.
