When I look at the incredible work of artist Toshihiko Mitsuya I can’t help but be reminded of that kid with no money who made action figures out of twist ties. Mitsuya’s sculptures are created out of aluminum foil, not twist ties, but there’s the same sense of child-like wonder in his work. Lots of images below.
These ceramic sculptures by San Francisco-based artist Erika Sanada strike an interesting balance between creepy and cute. There’s a real tension in these works that the artist says is a struggle between joy and sorrow. More images below.
These plant/animal sculptures by Vancouver Island-based artist Ellen Jewett are wondrous! More images below.
Digitally created faux-marble sculptures by a French artist who goes by the name Travis Durden (a reference to two of his favourite movies). The heads are, of course, those of iconic Star Wars characters while the bodies have been repurposed from various masterpieces at the Louvre. Check out more of Durden’s unique mash-ups below!
Brooklyn-based artist Tara Donovan uses everyday objects like tape, straws, buttons, and cups to create large-scale installations and sculptures. Lots more images below.
There’s something really satisfying about watching these undulating kinetic sculptures by artist Jennifer Townley (maybe the music has something to do with it). I would love to experience standing in the middle of a giant version of one of these. Watch the videos below.
Love these cactus plant sculptures made out of recycled plastic bottles by Czech artist Veronika Richterová. I’m totally gonna make some of these for my apartment! Lots more plants below!
