Ten31 Productions has carved a stunning niche with their living art installations. Human sculptures, topiaries and statues are just some of the mesmerizing living works of art created by this unique design company based in Providence, RI.

The company first took shape during the internationally known Waterfire art installation, which takes place on the banks of the Providence river. Ten31 Productions founders Joe Pari and Eric Auger attended Waterfire dressed up as their first works of human sculpture -- two stone gargoyles overlooking the fire installation. The response was overwhelming and the company launched into a full-service living design company, using the human form as its canvas.

Drawing inspiration from history and mythology, the natural world and modern art movements, this unique collaborative literally brings art to life. The worlds of fashion, design, makeup, sculpture, modeling and art intertwine to create truly mesmerizing works of breathing art. The collection currently includes hundreds of one-of-a-kind pieces and installations.
