Sculptor Alex Chinneck creates reality-defying buildings which look unbelievable. His art is also like a part of the architecture. Chinneck says ‘I try to make the everyday world that surrounds us momentarily extraordinary, weaving fantasy into familiarity. My work attempts to playfully challenge perceptions of possibility, refusing to let physics get in the way of imagination. I found it liberating to leave art school because my work discovered a freedom and confidence to roam across different disciplines.
Architecture, engineering, construction and theatre design all feature in my practice and it is through collaboration with hundreds of practitioners across these fields that my ambitions become reality.’
Here are some of his works.
