Little Celebrity Sculptures Out Of Polymer Clay byMike K. Viner
While thinking over my art and having decided in favor of caricatures for celebrities, I’ve chosen not the common drawings, but those you can touch and twist in your hands. All of us have been dreaming to touch a star, haven’t we?
There is another feature distinguishing my caricature sculptures from the others. They are created with help of my unique technique – all the colors in my sculptures are achieved without help of any paints. Each part and detail are made of polymer clay of its certain original color.
Sculptures become hard as plastic after being exposed to thermal treatment. The effect of durability is enhanced by the metal skeleton inside each of them. The height of each sculpture is about 20cm.
Before starting a new character I look through dozens of his images at various angles in order to capture the essence of his original nature. The creative process takes about two weeks. I really enjoy my work and I hope that my characters will make you smile.
can you tell i am a pro at keeping track of my files
Anja Niemi: Do Not Disturb
Anja Niemi is a talented fine art photographer. Born in Norway in 1976, Niemi studied at the London College of Printing, and Parsons School of Design. She shoot a lot of self-portrait photography.
This intriguing series by Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi is a self-portrait project entitled Do Not Disturb. To create each scene, the artist sought out various hotel rooms, checked in, put up the “do not disturb” sign, and used the settings as her backdrops. She hauled a suitcase filled with clothing and wigs along with her and, through what Niemi calls protective layers of disguise, she began to create different characters for each story.
She says, “I got the idea for the hotel rooms after reading an article on 1950s housewives in Norway getting a paid housewife vacation from the government. I thought that is exactly what I need, but as this arrangement no longer existed I decided to create it for myself.”
As viewers observe the artist posed in various ways, the flawless compositions begin to reveal troubled narratives filled with private conflicts and emotions. Viewers will quickly begin to feel the awkward uncertainty that comes along with peering in on a scene that isn’t meant for public examination. Niemi leaves it up to us to decide what happened and what might happen next. “The stories are personal but once the images are done it’s no longer just about me, and the viewer can take it wherever they like,” Niemi explains.
