Stunning Hyper-realistic Sculptures from Recycled Cardboard by Chris Gilmour

In the hands of Chris, materials that for ordinary people seem to have no value, can be transformed into high-value works of art.

Sculpture does not only relate to hard objects as a medium, such as stone or wood. The sculptor who came from England and settled in Italy uses only used cardboard and glue to make various amazing sculptures.

Used cardboard usually only becomes trash and worthless, can used cardboard be sold more expensive? certainly can if in the hands of Chris Gilmour, a British artist who has the capital of used cardboard, scissors, glue, and perseverance to change used cardboard art goods that have an expensive sale value.

In the hands of Chris, materials that for ordinary people seem to have no value can be transformed into high-value works of art. Starting from bicycle sculptures, Fiat 500 cars, antique clocks, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, typewriters, pianos, even Queen Victoria, all made in the actual size and 100% made of cardboard.

Uniquely, Chris often left little cardboard labels or logos on his work to remind people who saw his sculptures, even though it was only made of used cardboard but we can get spectacular results.

Check out the amazing artworks below!

Chris Gilmour was born in Stockport, UK (1973). After studying Art in Bristol in 1997 and opening a studio in Manchester, he settled in Italy in 2000 in Udine, in the heart of Friuli. Since then, Chris Gilmour is definitely more (re) known in the “Boot” than Overseas. In 2006, the prestigious Premio Cairo, created in 2000 by the renowned publisher Urban Cairo, was rewarded in a surprising way by Gilmour, who proposed a scale sculpture entirely made with recycled cardboard. "I always used cardboard, but originally it was to make prototypes and models, and my first piece, which was a sculpture itself, was a real-size cardboard cow made in 1998. A humorous answer to what was happening at the time, to replace cattle slaughtered during the mad cow epidemic."
