Not sure if his work has been posted here. Did a search on the forum and nothing came up. Love his work, especially the pieces that incorporate gun parts.

I had the opportunity to meet Al Farrow at his studio last Saturday, while he was putting the finishing touches on three sculptures that will be at Art Basel Miami next month. Using somewhat violent related materials such as bullets, shells, gun barrels, uzi's, pistols, etc. then sculpting them into religious cathedrals, mosques, temples etc. these sculptures are truly phenomenal, and the attention to detail is mind bending. If you are able to attend the event I urge you to check out his work as my pics are amateur at best.
Pics. The two uzi's on either side of the entrance give an idea of the size.
Al e-mailed me a couple of days ago and told me about this video that was shot by a Lebanese TV crew 2yrs ago when he and Shepard Fairey showed together in D.C. The video was aired just this past week.
Knowing that I'm a Shep fan, Al also said: " Hope you like it, there are some great shots of my sculptures with Shepard’s pieces as background."
