French painter and sculptor Baptiste Debombourg used staples to create a stunningly intricate mural at the Karlin Studio in Prague. Debombourg used 450,000 staples and 70 hours of working time in his site-specific work, choosing his materials based solely on where the piece will be exhibited. “My sculptural work is generally part of a contextual approach, and I operate in a space with materials chosen specially for it,” says the French artist. Baptiste calls himself a sculptor, but his work is very difficult to distinguish from classical paintings. Frenchman claims that he was inspired by classic Italian Mannerists: Bronzino, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Alessandro Allori, and others.
