Brainforest is the name of a piece by Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger but I think it’s also a great way of describing the style that all of their work has. Steiner was originally a wall painter and Lenzlinger was creating stalactite-like forms when they joined forces in 1997. The amount of detail in their large scale installations is staggering. You can tell how much I love their work by the number of images I have included in this post.
Fun ceramic sculpture series by Japanese artist Toshiya Masuda offers pixelated versions of everyday objects like running shoes and disposable Starbucks cups. More images below!
Canadian artist Trevor Wheatley and collaborator Cosmo Dean install large-scale graphic sculptures that touch on modern slang words and phrases, placing them in various outdoor locations (some more accessible than others). See more surreal images by Jake Sherman below!
