We can’t stop staring at these breathtakingly dramatic wire sculptures by Staffordshire, England-based sculptor Robin Wight. He specializes in transforming lengths of stainless steel wire into beautiful fairies who appear to be exulting in power of the wind as it scatters the seeds of giant dandelions they hold or trees and blades of grass to which they cling.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE
Entitled Le Solitaire, this surprisingly emotive sculpture of an enormous anthropomorphic heap of noodles slumped on a little chair is the work of French sculptor Theo Mercier. In 2010 it was exhibited at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.
In reality, the surreal figure is nothing more than a pile of silicone coated cords. Using two large, blue eyes and an intentional body gesture, Mercier has created a sense of vulnerability, saying that this sculpture is “The one who is showed, who is watched, he is unique and alone because he is a monster. It tells a lot about the idea of exposure.”
The concept is simple and it is another visual exploration of something new and totally different. We found a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals. The result a new head of of water hair! We used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face.

Paris-based artist, Daniel Firman is known for his realistic and bold sculptures that quite frequently challenge his audience’s interpretive skills. Over the past ten years, Firman’s work has been shown all over the world and is a household name for those who frequent the Galerie Perrotins in Paris.
As well as being an artist Firman is quite the physicist. As you can see in the image here, this elephant, Wursa, defies the law of gravity by balancing on the slimmest part of her body, her trunk. Wursa was specifically created for the Palais de Tokyo in 2008. The life-size pachyderm, standing upside down on her trunk, is 18,000 km from the earth.
