Artist Recreates His Face with 5,000 Urethane Fish


This 65-pound sculptural Self Portrait by artist Kevin Champeny is a medley of multi toned hand-cast urethane fish–5,000, to be exact. Each individual structure serves as a necessary pixel representing the entirety of Champeny’s own face, like an intriguing work of sculptural pointillism.

The artist says, “It is very painstaking work, I design, sculpt, mold, cast in color (none of the pieces are painted) and glue each piece individually to create the overall look. The idea came out of a desire to blur the line between painting, photography and sculpture.  I chose the mosaic idea as a vehicle to create tension and a conversation between the sculpted pixels and the image they create.”
