New artwork is revealed! This is gracing the Forth Plinth in Trafalgar square! And it’s inspiring me! Remember the old Music Hall song “I live in Trafalgar Square”? Well, I can’t get it out of my head now! So, taking it from the chorus. And 3..4.. “New Art in Trafalgar Square The fourth plinth has a new star! Bronze horse and rider are rocking away Atop the forth plinth are they shouting “Wayhay”? I’ll admit it’s a trifle corny, But I look at it this way, you see If it’s good enough for Nelson, It’s quite good enough for me.”: *Bowing* Thank you! Think I should stick to the art! If you’d like to find out more about the Plinth Art, details are here. And there you have it! Public art revealed in a public place and I’ve probably publicly humiliated myself! So what do you think of the new statue?
Toys aren’t art, are they? Well, with Christmas coming I thought I’d give Expect the Unexpected a break for a while. And introduce you to… TOY ART! Like this sculpture here by Nathan Sawaya Lego man by Nathan Sawaya That’s art made from toys if you haven’t worked it out! I’m a big fan of Lego both as a concept and a medium. Even now I can play with it for hours, and to find artists who use it to create is no surprise. If you’d like to see more then try here or here With Christmas coming, toys are on many parents minds. But be careful when buying little Johnny that toy. You might be starting something… BIG! What do you fancy creating out of toys?
Remember my post about only needing paper? No? Better have a quick look here then! Well, I’ve discovered the amazing world of pencil art! Your actual Art made from pencils that is! You could try some Hedgehog inspired sculpting… Pencil Art Or focus on carving the lead, like these! Thanks to My pins And, if you’ve got a spare pack of crayolas… and hankering for a bit of colour? Try carving crayons! And I haven’t even started with the suggestion of putting them in a gluegun…! But that’s another topic… So, are you inspired to do something different with pencils?
