50 Wildly Imaginative Sculptures

It’s no secret that I like art. But what I particularly love are works of unexpected creativity and imagination, which, it must be admitted, are sometimes the creations of slightly crazy people, or at least those who are willing to break “the rules” (see quotes by Lady Gaga and others below). These sculptures, many made out of non-“art” materials, run the gamut from the sublimely subtle to the supremely absurd. Enjoy!

    These are amazing. There is a place in Florida, called Solomon’s Castle. it is full of art and sculptures and everything, including the castle and boat are made from scrap and recycled materials. It is amazing. If you ever head down there, I think you would love it. Website images: http://solomonscastle.com/Gallery.aspx
