Chimera, Cardboard Sculpture

My name is Mykl Wells, I'm an artist currently living in Tucson Arizona. I am known for using recycled materials in my work. I built this large cardboard sculpture in 2008. Titled, "Chimera" it is over nine feet tall and is made entirely out of recycled cardboard. The title refers to the Mythological greek creature and also the medical term, meaning the merger of two distinct genetic groups. The beast is a blending of human and feline elements.
