🎉DONE🎉 Sorry guys for not giving more infos about this weird and ambitious project.
Generally speaking, i'm trying to represent some transcendental figures i have in my mind since.... can't remember😊, longtime BTW! They are mythological characters, belonging to a supernatural world, where these strange birds embody some higher principles and concepts of this world. This character (#3) belongs to a series of #five_elements , the usual 4+ one which is the large bird on a floating rusted structure made by iron cubes. This one represents the myth of the technology (techne), which combined with other elements, creates stuff. This specific sculpture represents "AIR" and in some years of work it's 4th one to be finished. So I've already previously called done Techne, Earth and Water and lacks just Fire. I'm planning to add more symbolic figures to the series in the future. I'm actually considering this project one of the most important of my career, and also the most challenging, experimental and breathtaking. I'm loving this way and i'm happy to see also you're enjoying it as well. Since i have some plans for this i won't reveal the other figures until the #fifth element is completely done. So, since i did LOTS of step by step photography, if some publisher will be interested, i'm seriously considering an idea to make a #book (educational and more), with lots of drawings, illustrations and WIPs. Will see!Concerning inspirations, i got a lot from #hrgiger , #moebius , #beksinski , #takayukitakeya san, #terry_gilliam , #spiderzero , #williamblake and #davidlynch 😂 Concerning the steam jet expelled from a turbine engine on the back is basically supporting the entire figure and someone (above all in next pictures) could recognize #chenwenling style on it.Believe me or not, i wad not familiar to his work since a friend of mine came in my studio while i was painting the steam sculpture (made of Aves epoxy clay )and screamed "seems #chenwenling sculpture part! Then i checked and i was astonished! I love his work #kallamity #lucazampriolo #art #artoninstagram #sculpture #cyberpunk #concept_art #skeleton #skull #mythicalcreatures #contemporaryart #symbolism #air #design
