We love art. In such a world, possibilities are limitless—if you can imagine it, you can make it!
Except, of course, it's not always so easy. Having a wild, vivid imagination is one thing. Making that object that you see in your head a reality? That is the tough part.
And if that wasn't hard enough, try making three of those things a reality... all in the same object. Not quite sure what we mean? Behold the world of John V. Muntean.
Covering the angles
John V. Muntean is a Chicago-based sculptor who creates multi-angle sculptures. In most cases, each sculpture is mounted in front of a white surface, then a light is projected on it to create a shadow. With each 120° turn, an entirely new image emerges. All from the same object!
The video above addresses the age-old Riddle of the Sphinx. (Q: What creature walks on four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon, and three in the evening? A: A Human!) This next one, 40,000 Years Of Horses, shows different versions of horses in art, from cave drawings to Picasso! It also shows you how small some of his sculptures can be—this one could fit in the palm of your hand!
Did someone say LEGO?
And just in case you needed any further convincing of this guy's talents ... he also sculpts with LEGO. We'd say that it would be fair to call him a master builder. (This video also shows a time-lapse building of the sculpture after around 1:30, so keep watching!)
Impressed? We certainly are. Our favourite part is how his pieces always start off looking like a big blob of nothing. Until he starts turning them...
As easy as A B C? For John V. Muntean, yes it is!
