Beautifully Surreal Sculptures [My Modern Metropolis]

Beautifully Surreal Sculptures: "

While we've all seen surreal sculptures before, we'd put money on the fact that you've never seen quite anything like this. There's something so wonderfully simple yet striking about Myeongbeom Kim's sculptures and art installations that you're just compelled to sit back and stare.



Looking through his work, what makes it all so striking and surreal is that Kim combines man-made elements with natural ones in a way that really makes you stop and think. A tree hanging by helium balloons? Goldfish swimming in a lightbulb? Who could have thought up such strange combinations and what is he trying to communicate through his work? (Hint: It's, generally, about breathing life into inanimate objects.)



The genius of it all, of course, is that just like any great art, Kim wants you to find your own interpretation.





















Kim has both an MFA in Sculpture from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA in Environmental Sculpture at the University of Seoul, South Korea which all lends to him coming up with these incredibly creative works of art. Love!
