The Beautiful and Bizzare Art of Alessandro Boezio

Alessandro Boezio is a sculptor from Milan, Italy. His anatomical works skirt the distinction between bizarre and the surreal. He takes multiple arms and legs and blends them together in ways that can make a viewer squirm.Their bone white finish and perfect anatomical rendering lends them the beauty old masterpieces of Italian sculpture. Some of his works border on obscene or pornographic, but lacks anatomical parts to be truly obscene. Thanks to re:art.

Artist: Jaume Plensa

Born in Barcelona, 1955

Plensa’s body of work is primarily inspired by the complexities of the human condition. He is known for the exploration of the tension between the interior and exterior life. The artist uses a variety of materials—from cast iron to steel and bronze to alabaster and synthetic resin—choosing the material which will best communicate his idea for the image. Plensa’s portraits are a radical reinterpretation of what is usually considered the domain of a more classical art. Each portrait begins with an image of a particular individual, usually a young woman on the cusp of adulthood, someone he knows. Posing with eyes closed, the sitter is photographed from all sides, and then the image is elongated and abstracted in the computer with Plensa’s unerring eye and masterful treatment of the human image to create sculpture with an elegant silhouette and universal appeal. The features of his portraits transcend race, culture and language.
