Amazing Sculptures From Scrap Metal by John Lopez

John Lopez, the sculptor who recycles farm machinery parts. Originally from the state of South Dakota, John Lopez is an American artist raised in a ranch, who transforms pieces of scrap into animal sculpture. After starting to carve bronze, our cowboy is now specialized in making iron works.

He makes amazing large, often life-size sculptures, which are a celebration of the American Old West. It was during his time working with bronze that he found a new vocation, still in sculpting, but this time working with scrap metal. In his own words he said « I am never bored! I look forward to each new creation, and it is helping me grow and develop as an artist. »

Bear, buffalo, horse … The artist makes life-size animal sculptures using abandoned agricultural machinery parts. Residing on a ranch where the nearest town is 40 km away, the artist recovers pieces of metal around him and can also count on his friends and acquaintances to bring him this indispensable raw material to create new sculptures. .

Kris Kuksi Transforms The Ordinary Into Surreal Gothic Sculptures

Kris Kuksi Transforms The Ordinary Into Surreal Gothic Sculptures

 On Facebook, Instagram

Kris Kuksi garners recognition and acclaim for the intricate sculptures that result from his unique and meticulous technique. A process that requires countless hours to assemble, collect, manipulate, cut, and re-shape thousands of individual parts, finally uniting them into an orchestral-like seamless cohesion that defines the historical rise and fall of civilization and envisions the possible future(s) of humanity. Each sculpture embodies the trademarks of his philosophy and practice, while serving as a testament to the multifaceted nature of perception – From timeless iconic references of Gods and Goddess, to challenging ideas of organized religion and morality, to the struggle to understand, and bend, the limits of mortality. None is complete without a final and brilliant touch of satire and rebuke all conceived in the aesthetic essence of the Baroque fused with the modern day industrial world.In personal reflection, Kris believes that in today’s world many of humanity is often frivolous and fragile, driven mainly by greed and materialism. He hopes that his art exposes man’s errors by revealing a new level of consciousness to the viewer. His work has received several awards and distinctions and has been featured in more than 100 exhibitions in galleries and museums around the world, including the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. Kris’ art can also be seen in a number of international art magazines, book covers and theater posters.

Finding forgotten objects in the streets and turning them into sublime works is the challenge of a very talented artist who uses these findings to make impressive sculptures, where every detail is important …
Kris Kuksi is an exceptionally talented artist who creates sculptures that are about 50 centimeters long and can, for some, be one meter long. Others even exceed this size! The Gothic universe of the artist takes a completely different scale with these sculptures. The most surprising thing is that he uses only objects found on the street or elsewhere. In the greatest attention to detail, Kris Kuksi makes gargantuan works in front of which it is necessary to stop several minutes to discover a multitude of details all as surprising ones as the others. Not to mention the fact that these achievements are made to perfection.
The famous director Guillermo Del Toro (to whom we owe Pacific Rim) has even been of his little word (very colorful) to describe the work of the artist: « Kris Kuksi obsessively arranges characters and architectures in asymmetrical compositions , with an exquisite sense of dramaturgy. Instead of using stones and shells, he uses screaming plastic soldiers, miniature engine pieces, piling arrows and debris to form these landscapes.
Kris Kuksi obsessively collects and arranges a variety of cultural flotsam and jetsam – figurines, model parts, collectibles, craft parts, and jewelry. The carefully curated and protracted collection process required for each piece renders each and every item a precious and integral object in these apocalyptic dioramas. The political, spiritual, and material conflicts captured within these shrines expose Kuksi’s disenchantment with the past, present, and future state of the world.

A Black and White Cartoon World At This New Seoul Cafe

It’s never boring scrolling through a vibrant Instagram food scene, and it seems like every café these days is trying to satisfy the need of a hungry eye. Of all the insta-worthy cafes, we raise you a café that will make you feel like you walked into a cartoon.

From the moment you cross the café’s doorstep, you are greeted by comic strips plastered all over the interior, from walls and floors to the furniture and dishes, so you can’t help but feel as if you magically found a secret entrance to the unreal comic world. And it all makes sense, as Café got its inspiration from Korean TV hit “W – Two Worlds” by Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo, in which the characters enter a fantasy webtoon world.

Sadly, if you don’t live in South Korea, specifically in Seoul, you will have to put a bit more effort to experience the illusion of being in a book. This small, but cozy café, opened in July 2017 and located in a popular Yeonman-dong district is called Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20 which is actually cafe’s address.

If you are a fan of illustrations, comics or instagrammable places, make sure to put this café in your itinerary next time you visit Seoul!

Surrealist and Macabre Sculpture by Rebecca Stevenson

On:Axisweb

Rebecca Stevenson is an artist living and working in London. She is best known for her visceral and baroque sculpture in resin and wax.

“My work is concerned with the visceral and the sensual. It draws upon anatomical drawing and botanical illustration, but occupies a liminal territory between scientific enquiry and the subjective, imaginary body.”

Stevenson’s work investigates the relationship between innocence, consumption and desire. In each piece, a sculpted animal is cut, manipulated and refigured. These interventions result in outbursts of colour and texture, twisting the material or “flesh” of the sculpture into forms resembling flowers or fruit.

Drawing on the traditions of vanitas and still life, her work explores the contradiction inherent in the “nature morte“, in which transient everyday objects – bread, meat, flowers, fruit – are immortalised and elevated by the processes of art. Rebecca Stevenson

Surreal digital sculptures by Adam Martinakis : dreamy, otherworldy and mystical

On Behance

Polish-Greek Adam Martinakis is a visionary digital artist, as you can see from these extraordinary images here. He specializes in computer generated art including 3-D animation, and he uses photo-realist techniques to make profound statements about human beings: how we use our bodies and interact with others.

Adam Martinakis explores the dreamworld and creates digital sculptures depicting surreal human figures in mystical artistic expression. His artwork seems to represent the living and the dead in both human and alien forms. Nevertheless, in both forms, Adam has creatively rendered his subjects, featured below, trying to understand the meaning and purpose of life, with great emotional passion. Simply… Amazing!

Enjoy these beautiful, otherworldy sculptures created by extremely imaginative mind.

« I imagine art being a bridge, a connection between the spirit and the material, the living and the absent, the personal and the universal.

We explore the unknown of light and darkness, in a supplementary coexistence that forms the event horizon of the creation.

I compose scenes of the nonexistence, the echo of the living void, immersed in the metaphysics of perception.”

Intricate Wooden City Sculptures by James McNabb

Philadelphia-based artist  James McNabb (furniture-maker-turned-sculptor) has created the City Series, an amazing collection of wooden sculptures, composed of miniature buildings, skyscrapers and architectural forms that depict intricate cityscapes.

The wooden skyscrapers, made in different shapes and sizes, look remarkably like the Manhattan skyline in New York City.

Each piece depicts the outsider’s perspective of the urban landscape. Made entirely of scrap wood, this work is an interpretation of making something out of nothing. Each piece is cut intuitively on a band saw. The result is a collection of architectural forms, each distinctly different from the next.

‘I grabbed a piece of scrap wood from the bin, and without thinking, made some cuts. In a few minutes the piece started to look strangely familiar, like a screwdriver or a mini skyscraper. I grabbed another piece of scrap wood, and made another object – this time, it looked like wrench, or a table leg. In the next hour I made 15 more – I stayed up that night and worked until morning. In 24 hours I made more than 200, all intricately different from the next.”

Sensational Recycled Clothing art By Guerra de La Paz

Guerra de la Paz is an artistic collective of two artists of Cuban origin, Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz. Working in Miami, Florida, since 1996, the duo seeks to use innovative and unconventional materials. They are oriented towards the world of textiles recycling clothes through compositions by volume. These “sculptures”, yet very aesthetic, are not provided meaningless and often reinterpret classic works or deliver social or political messages, not hesitating to criticize the consumer society.

Arranged together en masse, however, they become part of a larger message, raising their voices in unison regarding issues of mass consumption, international conflict, and environmental degradation.

Guerra de la Paz’s experiments with what it dubs “mass-produced refuse” are often unsettling, if not outright disturbing—and deliberately so. Whether fashioned into a sinister familial tableau, rainbows weeping swathes of color, or a pair of necktie vipers poised for attack, Guerra and de la Paz’s three-dimensional textile collages are as thought-provoking as they are visually arresting.

“Through a common aesthetic, we create work with a universal message,” note the duo. “It is inspired by an essential familiarity with the readymade and the archeological qualities that found objects possess.”

Phantasmagorical Sculptures Merge Plant and Animal Life By Ellen Jewett

 

on Etsy shopDeviantArt

At young age Canadian artist Ellen Jewett was already obsessed in taking shapes of three dimensional forms. Ellen is a lover of life and the mechanisms of both art and nature leading her to make a phantasmagorical and surreal animal sculptures. To Ellen, sculpting has always been about life; biological narratives, emotions, movement, balance and observations about life’s subtleties and overtures. Her aesthetic ranges from the hyper-real, to the surreal,fantastic, and the grotesque. Ellen’s works are incomparable, resulting from her creativeness are her strange and unique sculptures.

Her artwork is deeply informed by an extensive background in anthropology, medical illustration, exotic animal care, and even stop-motion animation, all of which accentuate the biological structure of each piece, while freeing her imagination to pursue more abstract ideas.

“I find my sculptures are evolving to be of greater emotional presence by using less physical substance,” she shares. In addition, she eschews any potentially toxic mediums like paints, glazes, and finishes, opting to use more natural, locally-sourced materials. “This, unavoidably, excludes most of what is commonly commercially available, and has sent me on a journey of unique material combination and invention.”

Kumi Yamashita Creates Amazing Human Figure Out Of Shadow

Kumi Yamashita – 山下工美 has a secret power. She can place wood or metal objects in just the right light to make mysterious shadow people show their true selves. The genius of it all lies in the fact that without the lighting and shadows the objects would never give away her secret. These surprising silhouettes only come out when beckoned to do so.

After being completely blown away by artist Kumi Yamashita’s mysterious shadow people, I had to get in touch with her. Why did she decide to express her creativity through shadows? What was it that drew her in? Kumi explains to me, “Since I was a child I had always been drawn to the beauty in nature. It is complete yet ephemeral and does not require an explanation. Like a warm yellow afternoon light or magnolia flowers glowing under the moonlight. I drew and painted light and shadow that I saw in nature until one day I realized that I could use a real light instead.

“In my work I find shadow to be the essence of human being and of everything else in the world that most of us don’t recognize. Once at my exhibition an old man stood in front of one of the artwork for a long time. Suddenly he jumped back in shock as he recognized the silhouette of a woman that he didn’t see until now. It made me laugh but at same time I realized how oblivious we all can be. How much we are missing in our lives because of that. In my work object and shadow are equally important. They reveal many faces of reality. Separated objects can be connected in shadow. It shows me that we all are connected and share the same essence. But mostly, I’m drawn to its ephemeral beauty.”
