Inspired by tramp art, Nashville-based artist Alex Lockwood creates intricate sculptures using discarded scratch-off lottery tickets found on street corners and outside of neighborhood bodegas. 
Lockwood folds and bends each ticket to fit like a puzzle, resulting in stunning multi-colored patterns. Each piece includes an impressive 800 to 1,500 folded tickets. “All of those colors are attractive for a reason.
