From Pantyhose Portraits to Sinister Garden Gnomes

 - Sep 10, 2012
Gone are the days of the ancient Greeks who created statues with stone and a chisel; today’s artists will go to any length to make unconventional sculptures. 

Art is about getting noticed and provoking thought. By using unconventional materials like melted toys and pantyhose, and placing their works in outlandish locations, like the beach and roofs of buildings, modern artists are challenging viewers to rethink the definition of sculptural art.

These unconventional sculptures in public areas bring surrealism to individuals' everyday lives. This challenges people to be more creative, to question what is and is not possible and to think outside of the box.

Check out these supremely inventive works that are pushing the boundaries of what art means.
