Tom Otterness

I love living in New York there is always somethings so new to see because the when you live in a city like New York it constantly changes. Especially the art, weather its in a museum or for the public its always something interesting to look at. The place that I constantly love to see art is on the subway tracks. To day when I was going to the David Zwikner museum in Chelsea. I saw these insanely cute sculptures at eh 8th/14st at the A, C, and E stop.

These sculptures where created by the one, the only, Tom Otterness!!! (and the crowd goes wild! At least in my head it does). Tom is supper supper good at creating these figure-ens that are both really cute and funny all at the same time. I give Tom two thums up for his creative and humorous sculpture. I feel like that his creativity comes from old cartoon charatures and he’s just bringing them to life and in the city. I dont know why but his pieces remind me of the smurfs and how then come to New York. Because their both cute, funny and small.

Gran Elefandret

This amazing sculpture is named “Gran Elefandret” and is created by Miquel Barcelo. A few days ago I was just walking around in union square and I come across this bronze elephant doing a standing on his trunk. I thought that is is just so incredible and abstract and totally realistic. Plus it must have been very hard to sculpt with it weighing so much and standing on a partially thin trunk and holding a very massive body.  The elephant was so realistic and I love the way the artist put the elephants wrinkled skin, drooping down because its up side down. “Pure genius” I say
