Erwin Wurm is a very interesting Austrian artist who has created an ongoing series of ‘One Minute Sculptures’ since the 1980s, where he poses models in rare unexpected situations and snaps a picture. These images often show an obscure relationship with everyday objects such as a chair or a broom, as seen above.

I love his fat house sculpture, which looks a bit like like a blob from 'Ghost Busters.' Just look at the video above: It speaks too!

These pieces of art by Erwin Wurm make me smile. Thus far, we have only covered one aspect of this great artist’s work--see his fat cars--which prompted me to post a more thorough scope of his artistic talents.
