Stick Insects: Delicate Insect Sculptures Made of Matchsticks

After the interesting “chicken sculptures made from eggshells“, British artist Kyle Bean brought us another playful series called “stick insects“. There are three bugs and each one is formed out of headless matches and simply held together with glue. Thanks to the help of photographer Owen Silverwood, we now can enjoy these delicate bugs in photos.

  1. I’m glad I checked out his website–I wanted to see if his “sculptures” are flat or have some volume (it’s the latter)–and I think I’ve discovered one of my new favorite artists! His work is wide-ranging, often with conceptual twists (his “Killing Time” made me smile). Kudos also to the talented photographers who present his work so well. Check it out!
