First up is El Bar2D2 by Carlos Ramirez
Hand painted and cast resin parts on a rusty vintage beer can. Approximately 8″ tall. Signed and numbered edition of 50.
We found this amazing collection of rusty old metal beer cans. Carlos sculpted the parts which were cast in resin and then he hand painted and customized each one. No two cans are alike and each is a different vintage brand. Signed and numbered out of 50 on the back. Bagged with a header card. At $100 this is one of the best deals of the show. You can’t get a piece of his art for less.
