Artist Michel de Broin takes everyday objects and warps them in such a way that they end up becoming a fantastic version of their original state. From the same person who an outdoor art installation that revolved around a crane and a giant disco ball, these sculptures are just as quirky and eye-opening.

Born in Montreal, Canada and based in Berlin, Germany, Michel de Broin challenges the expectations and accepted norms that exist in the world around us. By playfully combining art with common objects, Michel de Broin "sets out to render visible, through richly profound metaphors and analogies, the forces at work in the movement of the energies which guide our actions and govern our impulses,” according to his website.
