Gasp-worthy body sculptures by Francesco Albano

Here’s how you make a name for yourself in the sculpture world! Italian-born artist Francesco Albano’s human body sculptures ‘drip, melt, hang, and often appear to be boneless’ in a collection you’ve just gotta see to believe. Using wax, polyester, latex, iron and other materials, Albano sculpts ‘shapes and contortions that render the erect and boundaried body flaccid and grotesque.’

Francesco Albano now lives in Istanbul and has won the National Prize of Arts-MIUR for sculpture. He is ‘interested in and influenced by a wide range of subjects from philosophical, mystical and spiritual arguments to scientific theories, from psychological studies to real life stories.’
