You have stolen my silence, 2006, © Gehard Demetz wood, 167,5x55x38 cm Courtesy Galleria Rubin, Milano Photo by Egon Dejori G ehard Demetz is a mystery artist, the only thing that we know about him is that he was born in 1972, Italy, and that he currently lives in the mountains of Selva Gardena. Maybe this is the only thing that matters when you set an eye on his absolutely marvelous wooden sculptures, since you forget everything you may have in your mind.
Sculptures are available in many galleries located around the United States. We encourage you to visit them!
(click images for detail) All at once delicate and nightmarish these painted polymer clay figures by Seoul-based artist Choi Xooang are nothing short of remarkable. Try as I might it’s hard to find a definitive, trustworthy article to source information from, and even the spelling of his name seems to change from site to site. However it seems generally accepted that Xooang is attempting to draw attention to human rights abuses in Korea, and seeing these somewhat macabre, stunted figures unable to see or speak, it’s hard to dispute that. You can see much more of his work at Mu Um and Slash , though be warned it’s somewhat graphic (generally nudity).
Oh, to have been in Tokyo in June! Shintaro Ohata just finished up a solo exhibition at the Yukari Art Contemprary in Tokyo, Japan. This Hiroshima, Japan-born artist is known for his ability to show us everyday life in a cinematic way. He captures light in his paintings, showering the world, as we know it, with carefully placed strokes of it.
By Daily Mail Reporter UPDATED: 15:02 GMT, 27 October 2010 It takes several months to grow the fruit but amazingly just two hours for artist Ray Villafane to sculpt these petrifyingly detailed portraits out of pumpkin. The American model designer and former art teacher uses spoons and a scalpel to carve the innocent orange gourds into Halloween horrors in double quick time. As you might expect Villafane, who has worked for D.C and Marvel comics, is very particular about his pumpkins.
8/14/2010 under Amazing Art - by Nora Vega - Porno Queen This is the "Porno Queen" by Italian artist Paolo Schmidlin, a controversial sculpture of Her Majesty. The sculpture was shown in Madrid, Spain, in 2007, in a show that was (hilariously) opened by their own reining monarch, King Juan Carlos. But The Sun's royal photographer Arthur Edwards said: “This is quite obviously the work of a lunatic. I don't see this as anything more than a cheap stunt.”

“Art” is so loosely defined that some people are really taking advantage of pushing the limits of its definition. There’s definitely a point where we can safely say “Come on… that is definitely NOT art!” But sometimes what crosses that line is totally ambiguous and hotly debated. Virgin Mary
Today, we've compiled an extensive list of 22 modern day sculptures that are as cool as they are freaky. These three-dimensional pieces of art are mind-blowing not just because of the materials that have been used but because they leave an indelible mark on our memory. From the hyper-realistic sculptures from Ron Mueck and Duane Hanson to the magically moving sculptures of Peter Jansen and Saúl Hernández, each piece tells an interesting story. It is only through our shared experiences that we come to appreciate how sculptures have evolved as an art form as we reflect on the meaning of each visual piece.

Growing up in a desolate rural area of Kansas and spending a lot of time alone due to a working class mother, two considerably older brothers, and an absent father, sculpture artist Kris Kuksi learned to escape into his own imagination.
Last night at Gallery 1988 (LA) , the man named Craola (Greg Simkins) once again showed there there were no limits to his imagination with another fantastic body of work that created fanciful environments for his beloved characters to play in. Aptly entitled “Storyteller”, the show reminded everyone that Greg is one of the most gifted artists out there in projecting his vision with a narrative full of detail, improvisation, and embellishment. The new collection of works, which we got a glimpse of in our studio visit , was centered around two large-scale paintings, some medium sized works, and some wonderfully detailed drawings.
