Creative people can often see faces, forms and characters in random everyday objects, and it’s especially funny when artists bring these characters to life in their own ways. French illustrator and sculptor Gilbert Legrand doesn’t only see these characters, but helps others see them as well. He takes everyday objects like scissors, brushes, zippers, or cutlery and turns them into whimsical character sculptures.
With the addition of a face and maybe some arms and legs, a paintbrush can become a mangled fox, a hinge can become a shady salesman, and a juicer becomes a woman emerging from a pool. Legrand’s sculptures encourage us to look beyond what we see, because inspiration is everywhere.
Presenting the some illustration by Gilbert Legrand, these will help you find the fun characters hidden all around you!
