Welcome to the Art of Mike Melito aka CAN MAN!
Introducing us to his line of Hand-Made, Magic-Themed Sculptures. Here we have a soda can sculpted into a traditional classic magic trick called "Card Stab". Own a unique piece of art. Soda Cans may vary.
Introduction by Can Man:
"I started carving Can Man in 1994. One day I looked at a can and wondered what could be sculpted out of it. I had seen airplanes molded from cans and thought the soda logos made a very colorful sculpture. However, I wanted to think outside of the box, or can in this case. My first attempt was to cut out a piece from the can that was already in the shape I wanted to see. However, the first attempt came out looking like a very awkward stick figure. In fact, people that saw it had to be told what they were looking at. As I thought about my first attempt, I realized I could cut out a stick figure, keep it attached to the can, and then mold the figure like a child's bendy figure toy. Eureka - Can Man was born."
