Surreal Figurative Sculptures of One Man

Using a unique synthetic resin, Korean artist Bhac Ji-Ho has produced an intriguing collection of figurative sculptures that play with shape, form, and color. The eye-catching works present multiple perspectives of one face in unconventional compositions. Each piece is a sort of self-portrait that takes an interpretive look at identity and how one sees themselves.

The sculptor's creations vary from featuring five faces on one model to a deceptive figure with less than half a face when viewed from the front. It is as much about self-perception as it is about societal perspective, leaving one to question what the artist is truly seeking to convey with his work. How one interprets each individual piece is left entirely up to the viewer.
