Yong Ho Ji’s Amazing Grotesque Sculptures Made From Recycled Tires
Korean artist Yong Ho Ji creates amazing grotesque sculptures using only steel frames and recycled tires.
Ji transposed in his work his fascination for mutation and hybrids. He has sculpted an amazing range of animals, people and hybrids, all made out of rubber, which he calls ‘mutants’.
‘My concept is mutation—mutants. The product is from nature, from the white sap of latex trees, but here it’s changed. The color is black. The look is scary. Rubber is very flexible, like skin, like muscles’.
Yong Ho Ji obtained his Masters in Fine Arts in 2008 from New York University and has displayed many solo and group exhibitions.
