Korean Artist Hyungkoo Lee’s Bizarre, Experimental Artworks: Featuring Skeletons and Cartoon Characters

Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee is shaking up the art world with his unusual, innovative art pieces. His artwork features skeletons and cartoon characters, which question the traditional notions of the human body and its potential.

His work is often pseudo-scientific, as seen in his series of fabricated fossils of famous cartoon characters, “Animatus.” Lee handcrafted Bugs Bunny (Lepus Animatus, 2005–6) and Tom and Jerry with the help of studying animal anatomy and the characters’ external designs to produce a successful sculpture. These sculptures are a product of scientific accuracy and cartoonish exaggerations.
