Edouard Martinet is creating a buzz with his artistic creations, using old bicycle chains, cutlery and clock parts. And as a twist, he does all the creative work without any soldering or welding. Martinet spends hours each day in the scrapyard to find the best possible 'raw'material for his sculptures. He then uses small screws to fix them, spending months and even years finalizing sculptures. Martinet started assembling sculptures at the age of 10. Forty years on, he has carved out a niche for his work.
