Here’s a Mind-Melting, Mailable Skull Sculpture

February 5, 2013 | Marina Galperina

That’s twisted. Beijing artist Li Hongbo creates sculptures that look smooth and porcelain until you stretch them, lengthening in endless layers of soft white paper with almost invisible crevices, like some kind of psychedelic accordion, aaaaah.

See busts, faces, skulls stretched and twisted with the mailability of a digital entity. Then see a backbone unfold in connected vertebrae. Li Hongbo is an artist and a book editor/designer by trade, so that’s where the paper kick stems from. His work was recently shown at the Dominik Mersch Gallery in Australia. See it in action above. Watch your head. Delicate, eloquent horror FTW.
