Bryce LeVan Cushing
Bryce leVan Cushing believes that this culture has become too attached to physical items and external power. He chooses to smash the objects that people covet and convert them into recycled art objects. As an artist, Cushing considers himself part of the third gender movement and is an art shamen in recovery from exposure to the American consumerism conspiracy.

About Drap Art:
Drap-Art is a non-profit organization founded in 1995 in Barcelona, dedicated to the promotion of creative recycling through the organization of festivals, exhibitions, markets and workshops.
Drap-Art began as a festival in 1996 with the Creative Recycling Marathon of Barcelona, which in its second edition, in 1997, received some 20,000 visitors. In the same year, Drap-Art organized the Recykl Art Fest, an exchange workshop between artists from Montenegro and Barcelona, at the Biennial of Cetinje. This experience inspired two interchange workshops Tell me what you dump and I’ll tell you who you are, in Jerusalem in 1998 and in Barcelona in 1999, and the itinerant exhibition Evil Empire.
In 2013 Drap-Art also collaborates with the Re/8 Design Park in Novi Sad (Serbia) and HA Schult with the project Poble del Mar, as well as participating in the contemporary art festival Pronostica on Menorca and the Grand Gala of Surrealism in Cadaques.
