Beijing based artist, book designer and editor Li Hongbo makes what appear to be porcelain sculptures of heads, busts and human forms, but aren’t.
Inspired by traditional Chinese paper gourd toys which expand out from flat structures into three dimensional honeycombs, he applies the same glued paper technique but in far more sophisticated detail.
More at the website of Dominik Mersch Gallery where Li’s work exhibited recently.
An impressive, if slightly unnerving clay bust of Master Yoda by Italian sculptor Andrea Eusebi.
More of his work here.
Prosthetic busts made by SFX makeup artist Kevin Kirkpatrick (TRON, Pirates of the Caribbean, X Men).
It’s an incredibly detailed bust of Grand Mof Tarkin from Star Wars by Californian based sculptor Jordu Schell. You’ve already seen the fruit of his creature and character design work in Avatar, Alien Resurrection, Batman Returns and Hellboy.
That’s him there on the bottom right. Nice fella.
