Nantes, France-based artist Anna Foucher uses pieces of driftwood that she collects during walks to create delightfully derpy superheroes, villains and a variety of other colorful characters.

“I create characters from driftwood picked up at the water’s edge during my walks and trips… More than just a pieceof tree, driftwood, this lost wood, worn by water is the result of nature and has a story to tell… It is this story I revealed in sculpture and painting. Inspired by the comics, I made a cheerful style, humorous and poetic. A second life for colorful driftwood!”
