Wearable Sculpture Because Clothes are so Yesterday

wearable sculpture

Tired of looking like all the other sheep in boring old textile clothes? You might be interested in wearable wooden sculpture! American artist Tracy Featherstone’s wooden creations may not win any awards for comfort, in fact some are more like walking prisons than clothes, but you’ll definitely be noticed walking down the street in them. They’re the craziest, coolest things I have seen in a long while, I love them! ;-) Continue Reading

Gilbert Legrand Sculpture Out of Tools and Everyday Objects

french artist sculpture

I love these quirky sculptures made from everyday objects by the French artist Gilbert Legrand. He uses knives, scissors, door hinges, paint brushes, cork screws, zippers, and all sorts of other household items to create little people and animals. Art, like life, is too often serious and weighed down with issues. We need more fun art :-) Continue Reading

Car Tire Sculptures by Yong Ho Ji

Remember those old car tire swans that used to litter the yards of people everywhere? Well these car tire sculptures by South Korean artist Yong Ho Ji are nothing like them, these car tire sculptures are pretty cool. I can’t imagine it would be an easy medium to work with as tires would be difficult to cut and difficult to mold into shape but the artist makes them look effortless. Nice way to recycle too!

The Ron Mueck exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France has been extended until October 27. I’m still yet to see any of the hyper-realist sculptor’s work and would love to use this exhibition as an excuse to go and have a coffee and people-watch in Paris, but the bank thinks my mortgage is more important! Damn my shackles. Continue Reading

Marc Quinn’s Gold Kate Moss and Blood Self

Neither of these stories are new, but I thought I would mention that Marc Quinn’s solid gold Kate Moss sculpture has been unveiled and the National Portrait Gallery in the UK is hoping to buy his 2006 version of “Self.”Continue Reading

Marc Quinn’s Solid Gold Kate Moss Sculpture

I know this is old news, but I have been away from the desk for a bit. The British sculptor Marc Quinn has continued to use the muse of all British artists at the moment; Kate Moss. Miss Moss is now a life-sized solid gold sculpture titled Siren.

Marc Quinn has previously placed Kate Moss in an interesting bronze yoga pose. The teaser photo of the solid gold sculpture that every media outlet seems to have gives little away, so it could be a giant head for all I know.Continue Reading

Kate Moss Sculpture

The UK model Kate Moss will soon be a 3 meter high bronze sculpture in a contorted yoga pose. Marc Quinn will enlarge his previous version of Kate Moss, which was done last year, and will show it at the “Beyond Limits” sale at Chatsworth House in September.Continue Reading

Pumpkin Art

It’s Friday the 13th, so why not carve a pumpkin?. A New York artist has published a pumpkin carving tutorial online.

They’re definitely more interesting than the usual three holes and a slit for the mouth pumpkins. The artist has a gallery of pumpkin works online.Continue Reading
