Sticky Art

Even now and again, a video will do the rounds via email, showing an artist creating something with very odd materials or in a rather strange manner.
You may recall the clip a few years ago, of the Middle Eastern woman making stunning imagery in a back-lit sandbox!
Well, here's the latest: Michael Raivard comes from the well-known French art school called Corvisard. He's tried drama, photography and is currently back to drawing. He contantly searches for new techniques and that's how he came up with "Live Gluing".
This consists of creating a portrait in just a few minutes with only glue. The effect is stunning when, at the last moment, Michael throws handfuls of sparkles on the canvas, to reveal the final product! Have a look...
