This past weekend, my aunt, Toby and I walked up to the Chelsea art galleries to see these busts by Chinese artist Li Hongbo. Although his classical statues look as if theyre made from marble, theyre actually carved from thousands of sheets of paper that was glued together. So, if you pick them up, the busts will stretch and twist like a slinky!
Watch the video…how crazy is that?! The artist was inspired by Chinese paper lanterns.
(The exhibit runs through March 22nd.)
P.S. Art exhibits: Swings, slides, rain and marrying Prince William.
