‘Marble’ sculptures made from recycled paper-based material

At first view, it looks like a normal marble sculpture. However, Long-Bin Chen uses books, newspapers, magazines, and other material that have been discarded as the medium for creating his sculptures. This act of recycling paper-based material informs Chen’s work and the figures he creates are of an odd and extraordinary beauty. Buddha faces, Aztec and Chinese warriors, the human figure, land maps, and entire rooms are magically created out of discards from our ‘paper society’. One of the most interesting sights during Art Basel Week.

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
