Australian artist Mark Whalen is having a renaissance of sorts with his 3D sculptures. Widely recognized for his abstract and minimalist paintings, the creative is "forming new relationships with [his] work."
The 'Grab Bag' exhibition boasts a series of 3D sculptures that blur the line between surrealism and contemporary art with pastel nuances and absurdist formations. For his artworks, Mark Whalen drew inspiration from the traditional structures of totems and the recurring objects of everyday life — human faces, hands, lemons, tennis balls, vegetables, fruits and more. The playful experimentation with color and texture, as well as the surrealist morphing of forms, make the works highly intriguing.
Mark Whalen's 3D sculptures are on display at the Arsham/Fieg Gallery space, located inside KITH's flagship store in New York, marking yet another fusion of streetwear and contemporary art.
