Sculptures made from old tires and rubber

Ji Yong Ho is already famous because of his sculptures. His studio is full with scary animals like hyenas, felines or horses. Before trying this new material, he worked in clay and bronze but these were not satisfying him.
The rubber is more easy to cut, mold and modelate ( it is like human skin) and it has an aspect like the muscles, and this is an advantage for the artist. Ji Yong Ho is working since he was 5 years old and his
works now were sold with more than 10.000$ at auctions. I like the eyes and the expressions the sculptures are having and the interpretation of the living animal. The black tire make them look even more scary. Very crafted sculptures made from old tires and rubber, by the south Korean artist  Ji Yong Ho. Via here.
