Qualche settimana fa abbiamo parlato del lavoro di Henry Hargreaves e Nicole Heffron che, nel loro progetto fotografico "Celebrated for you", hanno ricreato i party di compleanno (così come ognuno di noi se li immaginerebbe) di alcuni tra i registi più famosi del mondo. Quest'ultimi hanno ispirato anche i lavori di Mike Leavitt, che ha invece pensato di creare bizzarre sculture mixando le fattezze di registi cult a quelle dei loro personaggi più famosi.
Ecco quindi Steven Spielberg trasformarsi in ET, Tim Burton in Batman, BeetleJuice e Edwars Mani di Forbice tutti insieme. E poi ci sono Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, George Lucas e tanti altri.

Send this along to help find the buyer of this 18" sculpture for sale @jonathanlevinegallery & unlock a 4" 3Dprint edition - #Batman is carved in the heart of #TimBurton . He's gripped in the throws of a #Beetlejuice crawling up his jugular veins. He entrusts his platforms to carry him along #PeeWeesBigAdventure . It's hard to tell how it'll end. He can't even get around his own #Scissorhands .

I thank all 50 of you following through here to comment "print", express support & push this project into existence. You're awesome.
