The Art of WheresChappell – Sculpting Pop Culture
Pop (Culture) Figures
WheresChappell is a talented English artist, passionate by Star Wars, 80’s movies, superheroes and Wes Anderson’s films. He uses these themes to create cartoony statuettes inspirated by his favorite heroes ranging from Princess Leïa to Skeletor through the Ninja Turtles or Spiderman.
WheresChappell is a unic scuptor in the Pop Culture world. First, he gives a real attention to the movements of the characters reproduced, giving the impression that they are directly extracted from a cover of a comic-book. He also regularly creates a gap between these characters and their original image, linking references and defusing the aura of the great villains and heroes of Pop Culture with particular accessories or posings. Finally, the English artist also likes to stage the idea of « multiplicity ». He replicates many of his creations, which can be found on his online store. He often pictures these « armies of heroes », showing on his social networks. To discover, these photos and his work, do not hesitate to check his Instagram page!
