Claes Oldenburg

Claes Oldenburg is a Swedish-born American sculptor, best known for his public art installations typically featuring large replicas of everyday objects. Another theme in his work is soft sculpture versions of everyday objects. Oldenburg is a polymath whose medium of expressions are varied and several. The one that is relevant here are the innovative and humorous reconstructions of everyday objects in both large-scale public installations and soft materials. Humour arises from the exaggeration in the physical size, almost as if the tiny everyday objects have taken over the world and are asserting their dominance. A subtle commentary on the consumerism and commercialisation.
