Ichwan Noor Compresses VW Cars into Spheres


Indonesian sculptor Ichwan Noor  takes the iconic components of vintage VW vehicles and warps them into perfect spheres and cubes. The large-scale sculptures leave the uncanny impression of being instantly recognizable, yet leaving you wondering just how the artist constructed them. It’s the immediate familiarity that initially attracted Ichwan Noor to using the cars as a medium in the first place.
