Arran Gregory is a London-based sculptor and illustrator who presents a series of animal sculptures made of mirror pieces. He re-imagines wildlife through creating life-like animals covered by little triangle mirror fragments.
Gregory uses strong geometric shapes and angles, combined with a reflective mirrored material, to create the futuristic animal figures. The chunks of mirrored triangle and trapezoid pieces fit very deliberately together in what could be considered a tangible representation of a pixelated object. Thus, in these depictions of living animals, Gregory is able to combine modern concepts of technology with the classic techniques of sculpture. The result is a breathtaking series of animal sculptures entirely made of mirror pieces.
Gregory said, “I applied digital aesthetic as it appears to the human eye. My aesthetic is digital, but most of my work is in analogue format. My mirrored animal sculptures have this contrast: they look like something that could be produced on an industrial scale, out of a machine.”
Arran Gregory graduated from Chelsea College of Art & Design in 2009 he studied BA Graphic Design for Communication. He is an artist working between sculpture and illustration.
