In a surprising fusion of art, architecture, theatre, and engineering, British sculptor Alex Chinneck produces contextually responsive interventions that animate the urban landscape in which they stand. A house that melts, a mansion that levitates or an upside-down tower of 37 meters are some of the amazing creations by Alex Chinnek who transforms the landscape of cities with great humor, creativity, and talent!

“I try to make the everyday world that surrounds us momentarily extraordinary, weaving fantasy into familiarity. My work attempts to playfully challenge perceptions of possibility, refusing to let physics get in the way of imagination. I found it liberating to leave art school because my work discovered a freedom and confidence to roam across different disciplines. Architecture, engineering, construction and theatre design all feature in my practice and it is through collaboration with hundreds of practitioners across these fields that my ambitions become reality.

The hardest trick is making something look easy. We take highly complex paths to create simple, playful, accessible, and hopefully, magical moments that reject intellectual elitism and welcome engagement from any audience member. In an increasingly digital world, sculptural practice and the creation of physically immersive experiences has never been so important. My sculptures are therefore real and not renders.” – Chinneck told Bored Panda.

According to his website, Alex is a graduate of Chelsea College of Art and a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. His work has been featured extensively by international media with selected projects welcoming over one million visitors.
