Mark Jenkins’ Bizarre Art Sculptures Will Make You Do A Double Take [PHOTOS]
He said his aim is to get people to look up from their mobile phones for a split second and engage with the world around them. He started his career by placing a figure in a refuse dump in Rio de Janeiro to draw attention to children living in the streets. He uses box-sealing tape and mannequins to create the figures before sometimes adding clothes for realism.
The 41-year-old, said of his work, “I like getting people to question their surroundings, what is real and what isn’t. These days, people are so buried in their mobile phones and I just wanted to get them to look up. So at the beginning, I was collecting social data about people’s reactions. But six years later, these images are more about poetry, of capturing a magical moment.”
