Sculpture: Teenage Fan Club by Teppei Kaneuji
As they say, one man's trash is another man's treasure25-Jun-2013
Japanese artist Teppei Kaneuji is known for his ‘trash to treasure’ approach in making his art. His one-of-a-kind sculptures are found-object assemblages using different mediums each time and this time it’s removable dolls hair from figurines.
For project Teenage Fan Club his one self-appointed rule was to only use plastic hair to create these colourful tribal monsters. Found art has its fans and its haters – on the one hand you are not supporting waste culture by re-using materials and yet it receives criticism for not truly being original because you aren’t starting from scratch.
How anyone could state the above figurines aren’t unique and original (and pretty cute) in their own right is beyond me.
