ISAAC CORDEL’S MINIATURE STREET ART

Now that RVA’s mural project is finished up for another year, I deciced to dig around and see what else was going on in the world of street art, and I can across Spanish artist Isaac Cordell.  While most street art makes use of the huge scale that buildinds, sidewalks and empty lots can afford, Cordell swings the other way, choosing to place tiny sculptures in hidden corners and ignored expanses.  

But, Cordell’s work is about more than quirkiness and whimsy, there’s a serious political note to his newest exhibition, Cement Eclipses. Spain has been hit hard by recession, and his current pieces reflect a huge swathe of those affected, from the forever-homeless who don’t see the change, to the business men who’ve suddenly found themselves lost in a new swamp of financial uncertainty.  

Maybe not huge in scale, but huge in impact and poignancy.

Unusual Sculptures of People and Skeletons Chiseled from Wood by Yoshitoshi Kanemaki

Japanese sculptor Yoshitoshi Kanemaki chisels these life-sized figurative sculptures out of giant pieces of camphor wood, a kind of evergreen. The strange pieces frequently involve two or more characters merged into a single form, which could been interpreted as commentary on mortality, or multiple personalities/perspectives.
