If there’s a theme on Colossal that appears more often than any other, it’s artwork involving ordinary objects and materials that are repurposed or reconfigured to create new, unexpected things. Portland sculptor Ron Ulicny has made a living for himself creating just such artworks. From high heel roller skates to a sink spewing Scrabble letters, his art objects frequently require a double take and often leave you with a smile, be it in humor or wonder. Above are five of my favorite sculptures by Ulicny, but you can see much more on his website. Also read a recent interview on Hi-Fructose, follow him on Facebook, or see a number of available works at Spoke Art.
