Trash Bag Sculptures by Khalil Chishtee

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 07, 2013
Pakistani artist Khalil Chishtee uses trash bags to mold and sculp human figures. "We live in the age of plastic, and plastic bags are the most ordinary form of this material...Anything made out of bronze, wood, stone or painted on a canvas carries the appearance of being worth looking at, because of its history, but if one can change the impact of that history, one is an artist."

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 01, 2013
This exhibition came down this past month in Stockholm, but we still had some great shots from Henrik Haven that he took of Michael Johansson's "Shades and Variables" at Galleri Andersson/Sandstrom.

Everyday objects are dismantled, re-organized and perfectly arranged into color-coordinated puzzles, filling out select voids of any dimension."
