This week we bring you a very special artist who has dedicated his art and his life to helping those less fortunate. His art is magical in more ways than one. Let's meet Alexi Devilliars who calls his art business Fishliptz...
Shopping for Canned goods to feed the homeless and make his art creations.
My artwork mainly consists of robots but I do make a lot of dogs and cats and alligators. But when I create a dog the personality comes out through the eyes and the snout. When I create account the personality comes out through the eyes and the whiskers and when I make an alligator there is no personality lol I love to make the animals because the people of the animals so much. Don't get me wrong I love animals very much I have for stray cats in the yard and 3 stray dog that we adopted.
My medium is metal cans. The metal cans I get from cooking food for elderly homeless at a shelter for people 55 and older. My wife and I found them about 5 years ago and we take them hot meals every week and with the leftover cans I create sculptures which I then sell online and at galleries and local festivals to buy more food to feed more elderly homeless to create more sculptures.
I have been creating sculptures in Arizona for about 6 years now.
I love every single piece that I make I really enjoy when I step back and look at it and it has a big giant smile with big black shiny eyes looking at me I can tell it's happy to be something instead of a pile of trash. I love them all they all help me help others.
I'm not that complicated of a person what you see is what you get I am very simple and I like to help other people. I wish that I had a lot of money that I could help a lot of other people with. The football coach told me once never to worry about my life but I'm always going to get by. I hope I can help other people get by.
