Elegant vandalism – Jonathan Owen is sculpting into marble sculptures

2016-09-06 // art popular

Sculpting a character in marble is complex but very classic. The Scottish artist Jonathan Owen decided to go further, using as basis the work of others, and sculpting without remorse into existing statues. Jonathan Owen achieves an impressive work of deconstruction, transforming these sculptures into playful and offbeat artworks. I had the opportunity to meet the work of Jonathan Owen, described as elegant vandalism, during the Edinburgh Art Festival, and I present you today a selection of his creations.
