Beautifully Detailed Metal Sculptures by Alain Bellino

In the 80’s, Alain Bellino discovered the world of metal and ornamentation in his father’s workshop where he learn gold and silver plating and bronze restoration. After many years practice and research, he becomes a master to make these beautifully detailed metal sculptures with antique metal. Bellino gets special inspiration from the Renaissance period, most of his creations involve vanitas. It was said, Bellino’s work is both iconoclast and highly rigorous, at the crossroads between past and future. Take a look at those amazing sculptures Bellino made. We also includes a set of detailed photo show you how Alain gradually assembled the entire Vader head. Enjoy!

Animal Lace: Spectacular Wall Sculpture by Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques

With the help of 3D printing, artists Linlin(Chinese) and Pierre-Yves Jacques(French) are able to create their sculptures on a new dimension. Linlin and Pierre-Yves’ yearning to mix their cultures and desires gives birth to unexpected works that are full of meaning. They have used 3D printing techniques to develop the wall sculptures out of white polyamide and gloss paint. In their latest “Animal Lace” seriers, they created head of dear, bear and elephant which protrude out from the wall in a decorative display. By night, lights glimmer through these spectacular wall sculputure and a dynamic energy radiates from the complex lace patterns in unexpected formations along the wall.

Stunning Stretchable Paper Sculpture by Li Hongbo

Those paper sculptures featured in this post by Li Hongbo aren’t normal paper sculpture we’ve seen before. Made from thousands of sheets of flexible paper, these sculptures actually can twist and elongate in almost any direction. Inspired by both traditional Chinese folk art (known as paper gourds—made from glued layers of paper), Li Hongbo applies a honeycomb-like structure to form remarkably flexible sculptures. Through this juxtaposition of playful mobility and a traditional aesthetic, Li Hongbo breathes a unique life into his works that stuns and awes the viewer.

Cherry Blossom Made of Thousands of Buttons, Beads, and Pins

By using a seemingly infinite number of buttons, beads, and pins, Brooklyn-based Korean artist Ran Hwang successfully create a vignette of cherry blossoms. Like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen, Hwang repetitively fixes hundreds of beads and buttons in floral compositions then proceeds to hammer them to a backboard or wall. When you look up close, the amount of individual buttons is somewhat overwhelming, but from afar, they are beautifully assembled cherry bloosom. No matter how many times I saw it, I always be amazed by the amount of time and patience needed to create work like that.
