In awe with these life size sculptures created by Italy-based artist, Chris Gilmour, whose pieces are made totally out of cardboard and glue. The artist best describes his work in an interview written on his website:
â€œOne of the reasons I use cardboard is because itâ€™s so easy to find- we have an immediate access to these â€œre-cycledâ€ materials in a way that could never be possible with bronze or marble. It is also free of the historical and cultural weight of those classical sculptural materials, and can offer new readings of the work. By using a material which everybody knows and understands, I can build on the pre-existing associations to develop ideas and ways of reading the work. Itâ€™s a way of creating a language which is understood by many.â€
