Animal

‘Animal: The Other Side of Evolution’

London based fashion designer Ana Rajcevic has created a series of 8 amazingly striking sculptural pieces that appear as natural extension (or adornments) of the human body, suggesting strength, power and sensuality. Tusk, horn and spine-like pieces come from a unique visual interpretation of animal skeleton structures.  Pieces, that are designed to fit over the face, neck and head are made in complex moulds from fiberglass, resin and silicone.

Black Tarpaulin

In spite of a rather unconvincing, and somewhat unnecessary, scenario (a ‘brutalist dystopia’) that should give a backdrop to his work , Martijn Van Strien has produced a line of visually striking and clear-cut rugged cloaks and hoods, and all of them just by using black tarpaulin. More cloaks, less talk!

Sequin Kay

Use of sequins reaches another level on these meticulously ornate and decorative works. London based artist Sequin Kay draws inspiration from Indian culture and its interpretation of light and spirituality.

Kay also collaborated with Philip Levine on the amazing head piece shown below that was displayed in Old Street underground station in London.

Ultimate excess and exaggeration of this seemingly redundant world of destruction derby and monster trucks starts to look amusing, appealing in a nerdy way and even cute with just a simple change of scale!

Micro model-car destruction!! Bring it on any day of the week!!
