Jonty Hurwitz, who has an engineering background, makes sculptures that delve into the idea of how people perceive space. His anamorphic sculptures can’t be seen until you look at it as a reflection of a shiny curved cylinder. How ingenious.
This cool sculpture is the result of a collaboration between Pharrell Williams and Daniel Arsham. Arsham posed the question to Pharrell: ‘What was something you used at the beginning of your music career that was very important to you at a certain moment that you no longer have or use’. Pharrell’s answer, of course, was […]
Marcy Chevali is an artist who can make fascinating use of everything and anything. Her Lint Animal series fabricated curious figures knit with sewing thread stuffed with simple dryer fiber waste. Chevali will often incorporate ordinary household materials including thread, tea, sugar, turmeric, even wrapping cinnamon in paper to create layered juxtapositions which alter common […]
Freedom of speech is the political right to communicate one’s opinions and ideas using one’s body and property to anyone who is willing to receive them. The Seoul government would like to take this to the next level. To celebrate the opening of Seoul Citizens Hall, the South Korean government has installed Yobosayo, a large, […]
I recently saw these steampunk bronze sculptures of animals in Honolulu’s Tabora Galley. Artist Nano Lopez, who uses a ‘lost wax‘ method that dates back to ancient Greece, has a way with sculpting these creatures to the smallest details, making them a colorful and fantastical lot with bolts and intricate machinery-like bits carved onto their […]
God created lobsters for two things: 1) for humans to experience the eternal fine dining experience heaven has to offer in the form of a crustacean and 2) to make really cool motorcycle sculptures with its bright orange carcass. Huang Mingbo, a Taiwanese chef and food carving expert, showed his students at a cooking seminar […]
FriendsWithYou is a fine art collaborative created by Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandovall III. They make huge public sculptures that are focused on bringing happiness to those around. The friendly work they make definitely put a smile on my face, whether with the enormous sculptures or short animations.
With tainted sculptures, artist Aaron Demetz presents a series of contradictions: pureness, smoothness against roughness and decay. They look menacingly calm and immovable. I appreciate the way he achieves the jagged structure. The fact all of that extreme effects were reached in one piece of wood is fascinating.
Jeremy Mayer breaths live into typewriter’s parts. He recycles their cold, steel elements into organic forms, like human’s body or animals sculptures. They’re constructed with extremely precisions and huge dose of technique’s knowledge. The proof of that is smoothness and essence, which he gave to sharp, mechanical pieces. However, they are not deprived of artistic […]
This exhibition is the ultimate juxtaposition of the old and the new. The Beyond Limits contemporary sculpture exhibition on display at England’s historic Chatsworth House features work from artists such as Marc Quinn, Tony Cragg and Bill Woodrow, Thomas Heatherwick, Allen Jones, and Mario Merz.
We’re pretty big fans of shadow art. We also appreciate artists who create beauty from unexpected materials. This amazing sculpture by Tim Noble and Sue Webster is made from 34 taxidermy animals (6 rats, 1 mink, 8 carrion crows, 8 rooks, 11 jackdaws, to be exact).
The easiest way to describe the work of the art collective Los Carpinteros is ‘deform to form in order to perform’. Sometimes you have to disassemble your projects and objects into their individual components to see what they’re really made of. After having established that, it’s way easier to enhance the deformed project/object and to […]
Liz and Kyle von Hasseln, who started the Sugar Lab when they were both students in architecture school, made these meticulously 3D-printed sugar sculptures out of a mixture of water and alcohol through a process that dampens and hardens the sugar substrate simultaneously.So, yes. Sugar. Wow.
All right, we think we’ve found just the place to get all our furniture from. The only problem is, we’ll need a bigger place. We’ll also need one of these magic ‘Drink Me’ potions so we can grow ten times bigger to at least get our butt on the darned chair. Robert Therrien is the […]
Katya Grokhovsky is an artist who works across many fields, including performance, video, installation, photography, sculpture, drawing and painting. I’ve known this artist since she moved to New York City, and has since been all over the map. With her performances and paintings mostly based around her being a woman, my favourite piece was when […]
