Hello there!

A while ago, I went thrift shopping with a friend who needed a desk lamp.
For me, thrift shopping means finding the most surprising things that I could sculpt onto.
I found a lot of fun stuff, and among those an object that seemed to come straight out of a barbie house: a pink ice cream cup.
I am not going to lie… my friend and I found it super ugly… But at a second thought and at the same time, our gazes crossed and I went back to get it.

Often, the things I thrift lie around in my art studio among trash for a while, until I know what to do with them.
And while I was rummaging through some old sculptures of mine, I stumbled upon these jellyfishes I made in 2016. (yikes, times flies!)
I never did anything with them, because the colors were just too flashy for my liking. So they were just waiting patiently at the back of a drawer.
Until some of them met the pink cup!

And a few weeks later, this sculpture was born. You can see more pictures and details here.
For now, I am keeping it for the London Art Fair:

The Other Art Fair, London
4-7 July
Handyside Canopy, King’s Cross

However, it might still be available after the fair, especially if I decide not to take it with me. If you are interested, the best is to subscribe to my art collector newsletter, that way you’ll be informed when it is available.
