Krystopher Sapp


Sapp, The Privateer

Sapp, Uncle-Vickers

Sapp, The Palomino

Sapp, The Somme


Sapp, Excessive Force


Krystopher Sapp has had a lifetime fascination with the machines of war. In his latest series of assemblage and sculpture, Sapp has gone to great lengths to acquire rare and powerful antique weapons, changing them from tools of death into elegant works of art and enhancing the natural beauty of objects created with heinous intent.

Ahhh.... Drollgirl. You always manage to bring out the weirdness in all things weird. But that's why your blog is so addicting.

I have to say- the artistry and talent here is ridiculously good.

Sapp is freaking creative person I must admit. His mind's eye is so unreal! But too much for me..

Pretty beautiful. I'm so fascinated by the disempowering of guns/weapons through art. Thanks for sharing these!

Ooohhhh I saw that first one on pinterest earlier today and I was so intrigued!! These are great pieces, with a lot of backstory and thought in them. Thus, I like them. Definitely love the gun ones; there's a new spin on the regular paradigm of a gun. Love!

Much Love,
Trissta

It is unique and avante-gard. The guns looks display worthy, but the pictures make a more powerful, disturbing statement.
