Kohei Nawa – Swell




“In his series ‘Swell’, Japanese sculptor Kohei Nawa uses animal figurines as moulds, and layers them with heavy coats of foamed polyurethane. The transformed surfaces serve as a metaphorical investigation into perception by using the tactility of materials to emphasis the ways in which we encounter objects in our daily environment.” via [Design Boom]
