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 Salvador Dali Bust
$ 39,000 23.5 x 14.4 x 22 182.6 Lbs Vermont Danby Marble Limited Edition
Salvador Dalí is among the most versatile and prolific artists of the 20th century. Though chiefly remembered for his paintings, in the course of his long career he also experimented in sculpture, printmaking, fashion, writing, and film-making. Dalí was renowned for his flamboyant personality as much as he is for his undeniable technical skill. Dali was highly imaginative and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior.
Digitally created, 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 bigger than life persona.
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 to create this series.
