Shockingly Awesome Indoor Sculptures by Mark Jenkins

Mark Jenkins doesn't like to conform. In fact, he goes one step further by altering his surrounding landscape with clever and witty installations that would make anyone do a double-take. We've covered his street art a few times before, so today we're featuring a collection of his shockingly awesome indoor sculptures, some of which are guaranteed to make you laugh and maybe even squirm.

“There is opposition, and risk, but I think that just shows that street art is the sort of frontier where the leading edge really does have to chew through the ice,” says Jenkins. “And it's good for people to remember public space is a battleground, with the government, advertisers and artists all mixing and mashing, and even now the strange cross-pollination taking place as street artists sometimes become brands, and brands camouflaging as street art creating complex hybrids or impersonators. I think it's understanding the strangeness of the playing field where you'll realize that painting street artists, writers, as the bad guys is a shallow view.”
