Not only does Pete Goldlust have the best name ever, he also produces some awesome works of art such as these carved crayons which are by far my favourite pieces of his. There are ten works in total, with each crayon having great titles.
The include "Self Portrait as Foot Massager" for the blue crayon piece, "Crazy Mel" for the red circle design, "Dina" for the red spiral design and the black squares design is randomly called "Philpotian Phlight Recorder."
I am finding a lot of awesome new artists at the moment and as always feel it is good to include their artists statement. Here is part of Mr Goldlust's:
For several years, my work has explored a sculptural landscape where human urges (libidinous, predatory and monstrous) are acted out by half-recognizable, otherworldly surrogate creatures. The work reflects my interest in mutated, hybrid forms, and the disjunctive psychological states that they represent.
I've explored these themes using a variety of media. These have included traditional studio techniques, digital imaging, industrial manufacturing processes, and children's arts-and-crafts materials. A sense of play is key to each of these creative strategies. For several years, the work has been largely focused on polymer clay sculpture.
