Robert Bradford creates sculptures from toys and toy parts. The mix of colors, shapes and objects make them pure eye candy. I think framed photographs of these engaging sculptures would be a lot of fun for a kid's room.
You can see many more delightful sculptures at his website.
Jen Stark's art has been featured and talked about a lot - and for good reason. The paper cutout art she creates from numerous layers of colorful paper are mesmerizing to look at. Although the premise underlying her paper sculpture work is simple enough to make us think 'hey, why didn't I think of that', it's still a signature technique that has become synonymous with Jen Stark's name.
Yet recently she was ripped off. Banana Republic's new store in London featured large-scale replicas of Jen's work with only the colors changed. Since the concept is very simple in premise (can someone actually 'own' the look of folded down circles or diamonds in multiple graduated layers?) It's obvious the window dress designer(s) were aware of Jen's work when creating these installations. How could they have gone ahead with this concept without a trademark lawyer's guidance?
Banana Republic will hear from Jen, that's certain. I am hoping Jen will reach a positive outcome to this situation - we're great fans of her work.
