Sculpture World International

Our team will be visiting this year-long event in the later weeks of October. Hopefully, weather permitting, we'll be able to move around and film a lot of the exhibitions, artists and gallery personas in their candid environment. Should anyone be interested in attending, please seek out more information at: http://www.labiennale.org/en/art/2017

Here is an excerpt from their website, for your knowledge:
"The 57th International Art Exhibition, titled Viva Arte Viva, is open to the public from Saturday May 13th to Sunday November 26th, at Arsenale and Giardini venues, and in several locations in Venice. The show features 120 invited artists, 103 of these are participating for the first time, 86 National Participations, Special Projects, and 23 Collateral Events.
The Exhibition offers a route that unfolds over the course of nine chapters or families of artists, beginning with two introductory realms in the Central Pavilion in the Giardini, followed by seven more realms to be found in the Arsenale and the Giardino delle Vergini. “Viva Arte Viva is an Exhibition inspired by humanism” - declared Christine Macel."
We hope to see you there, if anyone is planning on dropping by, give us a shout out!
The sensuality of human art is the notion that something can become more than simply the stream of its parts, enticing gravity from human emotions and touching on new lines of interpretation and imagination.

This sets the tone for one particular artist’s style of sculpture, whose work so often mimics a fluidity of motion that is captured and held solid within a never-ending loop of time and tangibility.

Kylo Chua is a young Philippine sculptor whose characteristically effeminate works have been featured in and around the Asia Pacific region, permeating the art circles of Singapore, Japan and the UK.

The uninterupted, almost calligraphic shapes of his artform escape the traditional rigid feel of classical sculpture. They tend to shift towards the smooth, essentially endless concept of a linear infinity, as one might see from the physique and contours of his compositions.

Kylo’s curious works have stemmed from his appreciation for the concept of eternity and the beauty of a measureless continuity, which is ever present as an underlying theme in all of his sculptures. Many of his pieces depict human and nature-inspired subjects, contoured elegantly into manifestations of this ideology. 

His artworks are now part of private collections all around the globe, with both newer creations and personal works viewable on his online web platform, www.sculptor.asia.

Sculpture doesn’t have to possess a finite set of rules or limits, at least not according to some ground-breaking pioneers in the evolving world of art and design.

One notable persona who leads the notion that art in itself can be much more than just a singular static idea, is Janet Echelman from Tampa, Florida. A recipient of notable fellowships from Harvard University and the Guggenheim Institute, Janet’s works have been publicly applauded as dynamic, responsive and ever-changing examples of how art can defy categorization and evolve into large-scale immersive experiences that viewers themselves can leap into.

Most of her vibrantly moving art pieces are created with cutting edge technology, but the ideas behind them are drawn meticulously from ancient styles of cultural craftsmanship and handiwork. They contort and shift gracefully when exposed to the imminent forces of our natural surroundings, such as light, air and water.

Janet’s monumental works have been featured all over the world, and she herself has given inspirational talks about art at events like the Ted conference of 2011. Her biography, history of works and other articles can be seen on her website; www.echelman.com, which showcases a majority of her building-sized works on its landing page.
With every state of matter, one can have an idea of its tangency. Water is wet, concrete is hard, air is untouchable, and one artist from Mount Maunganui in New Zealand, pushes the limit between the differences of these facts.

These are the unmistakable works of Ben Young, a surfer and boat builder turned professional sculptor through his intrepid love for the ocean. Much of Ben’s finished pieces resemble the cool bay waters of his country, set into a dynamic scene through his use of layered glass and other types of industrial materials.

His process is a very meticulous one, starting off with the initial sketching of his artworks, later followed by the careful hand-cutting of several clear glass sheets. The optically pure properties of glass make it an ingenious element for him to express the clarity and serenity of water in his many breath-taking masterpieces.

His website brokenliquid.com, showcases much of his works through a washed-minimalistic style. Ben has been adamantly creating his mixed-media sculptures for over 15 years now, with exhibits spanning across Australia, and all over the world.
Today, with the advent of technologies in manufacturing, designing and idea-scaping, many may think that a sculptor's job becomes significantly easier with the passage of time. Artists can take advantage of these evolving advancements in human history and create wonderful visual stimulations that captivate and enthral audiences from around the world.

Well, with these benefits also come an increasing number of new talents and inspirations. The world of art has only become more competitive for emerging artists and professionals alike. It's not easy to make a name in the art world, a young artist needs a unique taste to their style in order to catch the world by surprise.

This is our org's simple blog about some of the more notable artists that have been growing in both style and recognition throughout the worldwide sculpture community. We believe in sharing their works with students, enthusiasts and creative professionals alike, so that each of us may appreciate and learn from the masterpieces created with the hardwork, unique style and perseverance- shown by artists like these around the globe.

So without further adieu- we welcome you to the lustrous world of sculpture.
