Will Kurtz Sculpts Ordinary People

Will Kurtz turns newspaper into ordinary New Yorkers going about their daily tasks. The former landscape architect sculpts over wood and wire to reflect characters he captures surreptitiously on his iPhone around New York.

Earlier this year, he enlarged his following with an exhibition at Mike Weiss Gallery called Extra F**king Ordinary. The characters ranged from street people to children to New Yorkers walking their dogs.
