These are kind of creepy don't you think? Like, if you walked into a friend's house and saw these heads, cut from wood, sitting on their mantle, you may have a few questions. Then again, people who get those weird Harry and the Hendersons bigfoot statues on the side of the road in Humboldt County are a little weird, too. We prefer the creativity of Japanese-based sculptor and woodworker, Yoshitoshi Kanemaki.

We've previously enjoyed Tomokazu Matsuyama's paintings on this site before, but this morning we thought we'd show you some of his sculptures. Matsuyama spent his childhood between Japan and America, bring up questions about his national and individual identity. This is reflected in both the style and subject of many of his paintings as he draws influences from both modern art and Japanese art from the Edo and Meiji eras.

Klein Sun Gallery is delighted to announce the inauguration of our new space with Li Hongbo’s first solo exhibition in the United States, Tools of Study. With what appears to be impeccable recreations of carved porcelain masterpieces, the sculptures are in fact entirely comprised of thousands of layers of paper. Li Hongbo's stunning, stretchable, paper sculptures, inspired by both traditional folk art and his time as a student learning to sculpt, challenge our perceptions. The video is incredible...

Dimitri Tsykalov does a lot of interesting things with edible foods by way of art, some things that are rather disgusting and some things that are just well done and pleasant to look at. His series of Fruit and Veggie Skulls are more on the pleasant side...

Dutch designer Joris Laarman, who previously developed a 3D-printing technique that uses quick-drying resin to draw sculptures in mid-air, has recently created a robot that can print with metals including stainless steel, aluminum, bronze or copper. Using a robot typically used in car manufacturing, the method ads small amounts of molten metal at a time, allowing for lines to be printed in mid air. The lines can also be printed to intersect with each other, creating self-supporting structures.

Dutch designer Bertjan Pot's masks were the product of a failed material experiment. "I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day."

Jessica Drenk was raised in Montana, where she developed an appreciation for the natural world that remains an important inspiration to her artwork today. Tactile and textural, her sculptures highlight the chaos and beauty that can be found in simple materials. Drenk's work is also influenced by systems of information and the impulse to develop an encyclopedic understanding of the world.
