Weekly Art: Augusto Esquivel

I am in awe of Augusto Esquivel's sewing button sculptures. The way that each button plays it's tiny part in building such a solid (yet fragile) whole is just incredible!

"Like an atom in a molecule, each button serves and shapes the whole. I hold the button to my ear and it whispers to me, 'I want to be...' " Augusto Esquivel (artist's statement).

My favourites are the colourful balloons and the musical instruments, how about yours?
