Sung Hoon Kang's Stunning Metallic Strip Animal Sculptures

Artist Sung Hoon Kang‘s beautiful animal sculptures represent the movement, speed, and chaotic energy of the wind. Though static structures, each of his pieces seems to come alive as metal strips are converted into muscles and motion that flow in the wind. Kang’s talent is apparent within his artwork, releasing raw energy from the liquid materials. The sculptures are time-consuming projects as dozens of individual strips of metal are combined into fixed forms. Varying the length and density of the metal, Kang creates the real illusions of skin, fur, and hair; and stainless steel is transformed into lustrous claws and teeth. From the playful seal to a prideful lion, all of his animal structures contain a sense of dynamism that belies their static nature.
