Stefan Gross takes art made out of garbage to a whole new gooey level. Instead of creating something that looks relatively fresh and unspoiled, his art embraces its recent roots. Although each sculpture looks like it still belongs in the trash, there is a squeamish beauty about them that will encourage people to appreciate them for what they are.

Based in The Netherlands, Stefan Gross does not just reflect on the idea of consumption and waste. Through his work, Stefan Gross notes, "The world is a serious place these days. This is the problem that I try to solve with my work." Although his sculptures may look far from lighthearted, there is a bizarre hilarity about them that will make many shrug their shoulders in bewilderment.
