Scott Lobaido’s Latest Project Is A Memorial For Victims of Superstorm Sandy

by | Oct 15, 2015 | Art on Bay

Scott Lobaido is a Staten Island artist, most famous for his numerous American Flag murals. His latest project takes his work in an entirely different direction. Lobaido is currently working on “Empty Chairs”, a series of driftwood sculptures in the shape of chairs in tribute to all of those who lost their lives during Superstorm Sandy. The Staten Island Advance spoke to Lobaido, who explained. “The wood that comes from this ocean has the essence of each person that was lost, It’s part of them — their DNA is in this wood.”

Take a look at one example below:

“Empty Chairs” Driftwood Memorials #20 & #21 For Hurricane Sandy victims, Siblings, Charlotte Brewster and David Haggerty. Midland beach, SI NY.
