Art is subjective. Art is also weird sometimes. But as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Now, some ‘beholders’ will find this sculpture of a 1971 Ford Torino beautiful, and others, well, might just find a little bit strange. This sculpture of the legendary 1971 Ford Torino, was made by Romanian artist, Ioan Florea.
Florea used liquid metal to mould his sculpture into the shape of a Torino with some impressive detail on it, too. asked why he chose the Torino, Florea said that the big American cars used to make a strong impression on him as a child.
To create his rather unusual sculpture, Florea used nano- materials and nano-pigments. Yes, it does kind of sound like a science experiment, but it seems as though Florea’s experiment went the right direction.
The nano-materials and pigments creates an internal, 3D structure that then dictates the polymer how to behave. And thus, his vision of an unusual, yet strikingly beautiful 1971 Ford Torino was completed.
There have been many car sculptures through out history; some made of cardboard, some made of wax and now, one made of liquid metal.
Although we don’t have a lot of details about exactly how Florea managed the liquid metal, we sure know that people will be talking about his Torino sculpture for quite some time.
