Artist Creates Pop-Culture Inspired Sculptures using Swarovski Crystals

(Instagram/@thedanlife)

Chicago native Daniel Jacob spent the majority of his life as a successful businessman but always wanted to return to his first love; art. After traveling the world and embracing lots of different cultural influences, Jacob decided to leave his job behind and focus entirely on making art. He currently experiments with Swarovski Crystals, using them to make pop-culture inspired sculptures of Air Jordan sneakers, popsicles, and skulls among others.
