Reuse & Repurpose: Cardboard Creations

A while back while dining at Jerry's now in Tribeca (How I miss the old location in SoHo!) I looked up and saw this cardboard gentleman created out of cardboard wine boxes. The framed collage is attributed to New York artist Alexander Kaletski, and after visiting his website, I realized that I once used him as a model in a men's outwear story a few years back.

From cardboard boxes to art and artist to model, New York City is a place that's always full of repurposed surprises.


Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

  1. Thank you for introducing me to Alexander Kaletski. I just love his cardboard people. And I agree with you about NYC - always filled with delightful & inspiring surprises!
