Professor creates Vibrant Wildlife sculptures made with recycled materials

Japanese artist Sayaka Ganz shares the imagination of what it might feel like to gallop like a horse , or to swim like a dolphin and feel the water.

Her  “3D Impressionism” of live animals are sculptures made from random objects.Using reclaimed plastic, and iron objects as materials, Sayaka’s sculptures depict animals in motion with rich colors and energy. These materials help create a better visual aesthetic than they would have in the landfill. Sayaka hopes her art draws attention to biting environmental issues.

Born in Yokohama, Japan and grew up living in Japan, Brazil, and Hong Kong. She currently  teaches design and drawing courses at Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW).

Her recent exhibitions include: “Danze Della Natura” – solo exhibition at the Hermann Geiger Foundation in Cecina, Italy, and “Feng Shui ~ Wind and Water” – solo exhibition in the Isle Gallery, Isle of Man. Her recent commissions include a series of four marine life sculptures for the Monerey Bay Aquarium in California and a permanent installation depicting an underwater scene with right whale and various schools of fish in the atrium of the Exploration Tower in Port Canaveral, Florida.
