Forming thermal sculptures from bioplastic
Despite his modest appearance, the German-born Stefan Gross has captivated the art world in recent years with his extremely three-dimensional SCIFI-ROCCOCO flowers.
His spectacular works have been shown in recent years at art fairs in New York, London, Miami and De Pan in Amsterdam, among others, and have provided a breath of fresh air in the art world.
Gross tells stories about consumption and makes us think about the responsibility we share to the next generations. He does this with spectacular Flower Bonanzas made from bio-material that he has developed himself.
- About the artist
Stefan gross | Impressionism in bioplastic (1964), born in Bendorf, Germany, started his career as an apprentice in the practice of stained glass production. In 1988 he became a master of practice and decided to continue his art studies at the Art Academy HBK Saar in Saarbrücken. In 2006 he developed his own material that he now mainly uses: 'oil plastic'. It is the result of painting industrial plastic with classic oil paint. It is surface and paint in one and allows Stefan Gross to extend the painted surface three-dimensionally. 'Oil plastic' is translucent and behaves like glass at a relatively low temperature. Much of the plastic Gross uses is recycled. In his work Stefan Gross colorfully depicts the fall of a growth-based society. “The world is a serious place these days. This is a problem I deal with in my work. He shows the beauty and potential of industrial production in a retrospective of the times in which we now live.
