"SMILE (FACTORY)" shadow box

Hand crafted with extreme love, care, and perfectionism, by one of our all-time favorite fabricator/sculptor, D.W. Marino.  This shadow box sculpture is autographed by the artist and wall mount ready!


 ABOUT THE ARTIST:  Southern California native, son of a Naval Officer/Nuclear Weapons Physicist and a stay at home mom, D.W. Marino is self-taught and considers himself a fabricator.  
    Heavily influenced by the "Atomic Era aesthetics" with its duck-and-cover drills and general public fear of nuclear attacks, his style could be referred to as "Playskool Apocalypse."  
    D.W.'s sculptures resemble colorful wooden toys of a simpler time, but upon closer inspection, they tackle a full of range of topics from political and social commentary to pop culture and environmental issues.
