  • beautiful work!

  • Steven Ketchum

    I like to do muay thai and it’s awesome to see punching bags match all of the colorful shorts, gloves, etc of the sport. I’m also trying to picture the sound they may create if they’re hit or kicked.

    • Marisol Cabrera

      Oh wow, I wouldn’t have guessed that’s what the inspiration was for these pieces. And just thinking about the sound makes this both a visual and auditory experience. Just amazing isn’t it?

      • Steven Ketchum

        That may not be the artist’s inspiration at all. He may have been just looking to contrast a masculine / utilitarian object and making it vibrant work of art.

        I just have a bias that when I see a heavy bag I want to kick it, regardless of adornment :).

      • Marisol Cabrera

        Ha very true! I love how, although the artist may have one intention, art can be re-interpreted based on the perspective of the onlooker.

    • Ashleigh Vaillancourt

      Pow wow adornment on a punching bag. There’s a lot of socio-political issues tied up in these.

Trippy Anamorphic Sculptures by Artist Jonty Hurwitz

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image. In Hurwitz’s case, cylindrical mirrors reveal each sculptures true form. See more below!
