Kyle Bean Humour in Sculpture

August 22, 2012

Kyle Bean lives in Brighton and creates models and sets from a variety of materials. Through his creations, he quietly poses questions to us like, ‘Which came first, the chicken or the egg ?’ and makes us think about our global footprints and the transience of our throwaway culture, showing how the consumer is obsessed with smaller and smaller phones.

Kyle has created window displays for luxury brands such as Liberty, Selfridges and Hermes, see the paper suits below.

This project for Selfridges was inspired by the law of conservation of mass: ‘Matter cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed’.

Another incredibly detailed set for Diesel.

He has also been commissioned for editorial projects by publications including Wallpaper, Financial Times, VMAN and Wired.

Kyle makes models of insects and dragonflies using matchsticks …

… and his tongue-in-cheek version of  ‘The London Tube Map’  makes me look at bendy straws in a whole new light lol.

You can see more of Kyles work here, and there’s a great interview on Design Boom‘s site.
