Artist to Know - Mark Langan

There are so many amazing artist working with recycled materials.  When I found Mark I was memorized by what he does with cardboard.  I hope you enjoy his work as much as I do.


Mark Langan

Mark Langan is an Artist who resides from the Cleveland, Ohio suburb of Brunswick Hills. He creates fantastic sculptural works using nothing more than mere corrugated boxes, non-toxic glue, a razor knife, a cutting edge and mat.


Corrugated is the most recycled packaging material on Earth, with a recovery rate over 78 percent. Corrugated is used to ship 90% of all products in the U.S. Recycling one ton of corrugated saves nine cubic yards of landfill space and 46 gallons of oil.


What Mark has to say about corrugated art: "My personal interpretation to the term “Corrugated Art” is the celebration of the unique properties of a highly visible manufactured product for which it was not purportedly intended. Striving to artistically focus by highlighting those aesthetically characteristic qualities which otherwise would be unknowingly ignored."


His artwork currently adorns the boardrooms and lobbies from small to prominent firms throughout the U.S.
