Artist Wilfrid Wood Captures the ‘Beauties and Oddities’ of the Rio Olympics

Wood7

London-based artist Wilfrid Wood teams up with It’s Nice That for a series of expressive plasticine sculptures. Focusing less on the achievements and more on the unique characters the games brought to our attention, the off-beat project is the perfect way to commemorate the 2016 Olympics! See the series of sculptures below.

Thomas Bach, the 9th president of the IOC and past gold medalist.
