Tucson Citizen’s Epitaph saved in Newsprint Sculptureby Carolyn Classen on May. 16, 2012, under Arts, Life
Local artist Nick Georgiou loves newsprint and uses it in his art to create amazing sculptures and framed pictures. On May 16, 2009 (exactly 3 years ago) when our Tucson Citizen newspaper ceased publication, Nick ran out & bought the paper and quickly created a dog sculpture out of it. I only found out about this creation last Fall at Nick’s one man show at the Temple of Music and Art (click here). I knew Nick had created a dog sculpture but I didn’t know it was made from our Citizen newsprint on that very last day of publication.
So I kindly asked Nick to send me photos he took of the May 16, 2009 newsstand with his dog friend, appropriately named “Citizen Z” (who is not for sale).
Georgiou’s website: http://myhumancomputer.blogspot.com/. His studio is upstairs at the Citizens Art Studios at 44 W. 6th Street (BICAS building). See more photos of this dog sculpture at his website.
Nick also had a booth recently at the Tucson Festival of Books, as he uses discarded books in his creative art as well.
