Sculpture: Bonzai Treehouse

TAKANORI AIBA: Sculpture


Japanese artist Takanori Aiba creates amazingly detailed resin sculptures so elaborately detailed as to impart them with a Bottle City of Kandor-like habitability.  "Bonsai-B," pictured above, looks like a small town built in the branches of a Bonsai tree.  It elicits fond memories of Swiss Family Robinson and Tarzan, which among my favorite movies as a kid. Takanori says that he draws inspiration from his background as a maze illustrator for for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE.

Construction material: stone clay, resin clay, epoxy putty, hinoki veneer sheet, bamboo, copper line, plastic, resin, paper, plaster, glass.
