This series developed from the desire to be able to bring multiple disciplines and artists together in a process that allowed for each expert to leave their own mark on the work.
From the initial clay model, to the digital scanning and 3D rendering of the work, to the milling and hand finishing and detailing; this series brought together artists from multiple artistic disciplines. Together, the Collective pushed the boundaries between traditional fine art and technology.
North American Sculpture Collective Andy Warhol Bust
$ 43,000 22.8 x 14.4 x 23.4 246.38 Lbs Vermont Danby Marble Limited Edition
Andy Warhol remains one of the most influential figures in contemporary art. Warhol’s life and work inspires creative thinkers everywhere thanks to his iconic imagery and his artfully cultivated celebrity. His impact as an artist is far deeper and greater than perhaps his most popular quote, “everyone will be world famous for fifteen minutes.”
His curiosity resulted in an enormous body of work that spanned every available medium and crossed the boundaries between high and low art. This work has been digitally drafted, robotically milled, and incredibly detailed and finished by skillful artistic hands. We wanted to capture his uniqueness in this bust made of Danby Marble. It is rendered 1.5 times actual scale to capture his own iconic image.
The North American Sculpture Collective presents their Artist Bust Series where each bust was created by a team of designers, engineers, and artists who came together to combine traditional techniques and digital technology.
