I just got this incredible felt book from DKult Chaplain Dustin de Wind. What a wonderfully trashy piece.

I'd pay Snoop Lion to wrap him.

Whose Dustin de Wind? Whose the baddest badass Wrapper?

We've had discussions about Christo before because he is a Wrapper - maybe one of the great Wrappers in terms of scale.

Now Dustin's wrapped Santa at M-L - the term that came up was "mummified." And Marie said Dustin inspired her to start mummifying things. 

So does mummification play into this. You could make a performance piece around that.

That's just great stuff! There's something very primal and addictive about wrapping!

Susan M. & Not Hi Ng OTM - great comments on Judith Scott! Definitely provides context for Dustin's work.

I did an internship at Creative Growth when Judith was there. It was amazing to watch her work. There are books and a couple of films about her. Well worth checking out.

A California artist named Judith Scott was very well known for her wrapped pieces. She worked at Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland which serves adult artists with developmental, mental and physical disabilities. Her work is exceptional and Dustin's small wrapped additions to his work reminds me of her work. Unfortunately she died a few years ago.

Thanks DVS. That's a big compliment. My biggest thing is trying to work toward composition, I know it's something that'll help me out in the long run. Vizma, those artists look awesome. I wish I could afford to mail wrapped things that big!

NHN, I wanted to comment earlier that the photos are great too, a scanner wouldn't have captured the depth. First pic looks like a heart to me.

You guys probably haven't heard of the Aussie artists Sean Cordeiro and Clare Healy? They wrap up stuff on a huge scale, love their stuff, this reminds me of their work.
