Artist Created Bust Sculptures That Antiquity And Retro-Futurism Come Together

Artist Tomas Barceló created bust sculptures that antiquity and retro-futurism come together. He sculpted all the busts from resin and recycled objects that resemble ancient art while evoking otherworldly relics of an alternate reality.

He says about sculptures:

”I believe that sculpture is the art of presence… Sculpture shares space and time with the viewer, and that is what makes it so powerful. That’s why I don’t try so much to tell stories as I try to create powerful presences, each in its own way. The fact that a small robot girl looks at you more intensely than you look at her, is fascinating to me.”
