Sculptured Art can be a highly innovative medium. It is often considered as a rather traditional art form, but many artists have used it to express their creativity and imagination. The following list presents five of the most innovative sculptures in contemporary art.
Tadashi Kawamata – “Untitled (Art Box)”
Tadashi Kawamata is an artist living in New York who has made his name with his unusual work that includes pieces made out of ice cream, live animals and even people. One of his most famous works is an installation called “Untitled (Art Box)” that he created in 2010.
“Untitled (Art Box)” is an almost fully enclosed glass room that was once part of the Versailles exhibition at MOMA in New York. The installation was completely dark inside, and included only a small opening at the top where visitors could enter one at a time. When they did enter, they found themselves surrounded by smoke and mirrors that created the illusion that there were many people inside the room with them when in fact there was only one other person – the artist himself. The piece got its name from Kawamata’s belief that it was as much a sculpture as it was an actual room, which he felt also made it an art box
I’ve been a collector of unique artistic objects for a long time, and have recently started to make my own. I hope you like them as much as I do.
While the below list is not by any means complete, here are some of the most innovative sculptured art pieces that have inspired me over the years:
1. The Laser Sculpture – (by Nick Yapor-Cox)
Innovative Sculptured Art: It is made entirely out of mirrors and laser-cut acrylic sheets, and when illuminated it creates vibrant “rainbows” like a kaleidoscope.
2. The 3D Mandala – (by John Edmark)
Innovative Sculptured Art: it is a sort of kinetic sculpture that creates a three dimensional mandala when the parts are spun around at high speeds.
3. The Infinity Mirror – (by Jason Salavon)
Innovative Sculptured Art: it consists of a polished piece of chrome reflected into infinity with a series of mirrors and prisms, creating a mesmerizing effect when viewed from different angles.
4. The World Freefall Project – (by Alex Chinneck)

5. “Candy Cane” by Mark Jenkins. Candy canes are an iconic Christmas treat, but this sculpture of a candy cane is anything but typical. The artist arranged the stripes of the cane to form a crucifix.
“It’s one of my favorite pieces and I got it from my mother,” said art box collector Lynn Sorenson. “It’s all about the line and how you think.”
4. “Aqua Dolce” by Mel Ramos. The color red is usually associated with passion, anger or danger, but in the painting “Aqua Dolce” by Mel Ramos, it’s bright pink lips that steal the show.
3. “Blue” by Marc Chagall. This painting wasn’t actually intended to be a piece of art; it was just a letter written by Chagall to his wife while he was away on business. But when she found out that her husband was not only a talented painter and writer but also a skilled sculptor, she had him turn the letter into an actual sculpture for their yard in France.
2. “The Birth of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli.”This is one of my favorites because I love Botticelli,” said artist and collector Celeste Ciulla-Kran
Sculpture is one of the oldest forms of art. It has a long history of being used to create 3D images or to make 2D images appear to be in 3D, most commonly when creating portraits. The word “sculpture” can also refer to the finished work itself.
Truly innovative sculpture is rare. But the efforts of some artists to use new technologies, materials and techniques to create sculptures that are more than just decorations have resulted in some amazing works of art that push what we think sculpture is capable of. Here are five selected examples of such sculptures by artists who have done something really interesting with them.
Fiberglass Sculpture is a broad term that applies to a wide range of three-dimensional artistic works created using glass fibers. Fiberglass sculptures may be created using hand tools and molds, or they may be built by using air pressure and resins. When the materials are applied, they fuse together to form a permanent bond that can withstand any weather condition. These sculptures can be made using a wide variety of materials, including plastic, glass, steel, concrete and more.
Sound sculpture is an art form in which sounds are generated by the sculpture itself. Sound sculpture is often considered an experimental art and is thought to be found only within the contemporary art world. The idea of sound sculpture appears to have existed in many ancient cultures as there are examples dating back as far as 2,000 years ago.
Sound sculpture generally consist of some kind of resonator like a bowl or a drum that causes sound when it is struck or when the wind blows across it or when it is played with an instrument or when it vibrates from its own tone.
Sound sculpture has been used for ritualistic ceremonies and for healing therapy around the world for thousands of years. It was also thought that some sculptures had supernatural powers and could ward off evil spirits and bring good luck to those
