Chimpanzee. Before creating something, I often make a sketch, but not on paper – in my mind. I sift through all the parts I have in my head and put them together – incorporating them or rejecting them – until I reach a tangible image. I often use parts from cars, motorcycles and bicycles in my work. They help to get the desired shape. This sculpture is no exception. I created it using GAZ truck lamp housings and parts from a JAWA motorcycle and a MAN cab. The result is excellent. I managed to convey the animal’s playful yet also careless appearance thanks to the amazing parts and colours. I left them original. I can already see a smile on your face. That’s always what I’m after.
