Self-proclaimed Glamadermist David Hevel is, in a word, ridiculous. His pop-culture inspired sculptures are delightfully whimsical, tacky, and slightly disturbing all at once.

He decorates taxidermy forms with rhinestones, fake flowers, and wigs, paying tribute to divas and jerks such as Tyra Banks, Lady Gaga, and Bernie Madoff, while also asking: why are they so important anyway?
