Claes Oldenburg

I’m not the biggest fan of Pop Art in general, but there are a few Pop artists that I do like a whole lot. My very favorite is easily Claes Oldenburg. Seeing his work always makes my day and puts me in a good mood. There is something nice about walking up to a monumental safety pin or giant hose emptying out into a pond. They make me happy!

I really like the store-fronts Oldenburg put together in the ’60s. He would make sculpted plaster cakes, bags of potato chips, or plaster lingerie and have them for sale in a space he’d rented. I think that is such a cool idea.

My favorite pieces have always been his soft sculptures. His solid object made out of fabric and vinyl that have been stuffed and sewn together. There is something very special about those… Checkity-check them out!
