He gradually began to incorporate stamps into his work until they completely took over all of his works.
Scott uses between 150 and over 8,000 stamps and can take anywhere from one day to eight weeks to create depending on the size and complexity of the piece.
However, he never bought any new stamps.
“It’s really important to me that the stamps in my work have been used, are being reused, and more importantly have a hidden history of sending. Having a sender and a receiver, so that each piece has one layer to another to it,” he said.
Now nearly 20 years later, he has wowed others with his imagination and artistry.
Scott said: “I love and never tire of seeing someone getting closer and closer to peace realize it’s actually made of postage stamps and watch their Aha moment.
Scott hopes to inspire others to work with alternative materials and to think outside the box.
