Surrealism in art never fails to fascinate both our eyes and mind. Many surrealist artists have effectively depicted dreamlike imageries that hold so many hidden meanings. Surrealism doesn’t only reside in paintings but it also found its way to sculptures. We’ve seen a lot of surreal sculptures before, they’re actually nothing new. But a Chinese artist is giving a whole new breadth of phantasm to surreal sculpture. Yuanxing Liang, the sculptor behind the Chunmang Peach Blossom Island, creates bust sculptures of women with hair transformed into fantastical landscapes.
Liang uses grey resin for the bust sculptures. The most notable characteristic of his creations is the intricate design that he applies on the figure’s head. For the hair, the artist creates ethereal landscapes using trees and other elements to supplant flowing strands of hair. Along with the natural elements, he also incorporated a miniature contemporary structure which connects to a mini fish pond. If you look at it in every angle, you’ll find other inconspicuous details that will surely amaze you.
