Fans of Andrea Petrachi can rejoice as she’s added more oddball robot sculptures to her ever-expanding collection. Once again, she uses recycled everyday parts to craft mechanical creatures you’d expect to see in a Japanese anime or a Pixar animated movie. All the design aspects of the original products, such as chrome finishings and articulated joints, are absorbed into each new Petrachi figurine, resulting in original creations. If these toys were made available for sale to the public, I would not hesitate to purchase a few myself.

New to Andrea Petrachi’s sculptures is the inclusion of doll faces. Though she’s experimented with them to a lesser degree in the past, many of her latest statues have opted to use the cutesy visages of actual toys, making it easier to empathize with her work.
