“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the work of Italian artist Dario Tironi is evident proof. While most people look at discarded objects and see only trash, he sees precious materials for his beautiful sculptures. Old toys, discarded computer components, broken calculators, even plastic bottles, they're all part of Tironi's recycled universe. Similar to Robert Bradford, who uses old toys for his sculptures, and Leo Sewell, the young Italian artist manages to glue together various junk items and create detailed sculptures of people and animals, and gives everyone who sees his art a whole new perspective on the concept of recycling.”
