Bobbi Mastrangelo is internationally known for her “Grate Works.” She transforms manhole covers, sewers, and grates into artistic streetscapes. Her sculpture relief works appear so real that viewers wonder how she could even lift them to hang on a wall. Exquisite works on her handmade paper vary from little jewel-like mandalas to imaginative constructions incorporating bamboo, textural fibers and special effects. Here is a video about her work
The artist, a member of The National Association of Women Artists, is listed in “Who’s Who in American Art,” “Who’s Who in American Women” and other publications. Her works are in prominent collections including: The Baltimore Public Works Museum, The Heckscher Museum, The Islip Art Museum and The Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University.
