These super cool clay sculptures are the work of the talented Italian artist Gianluca Maruotti who creates eclectic scenes and funky characters out of modelling clay.

Taking on a life of their own, the clay sculptures are done with such precision and with such creativity and flair that the work looks like it belongs onscreen as part of the contemporary illustrated clay cartoons being made these days. As an illustrator, puppet maker and stop motion animator, Maruotti was probably thinking about that when making these charming and cheeky characters as he makes animated videos for cinema, TV and musicians -- as well as editorial illustrations and books.
