Enrico Ferrarini cleverly disfigures Classical Sculptures

Famous Italian artist Enrico Ferrarini cleverly mixes classical and modern adaptations of art in his latest artwork series.

Ferrarini’s distorted sculptures apply the concept of a computer glitch by expanding it to the world of art. Ferrarini created several classically inspired clay sculptures and then scanned the images onto his computer. From there, Ferrarini used digital software to multiply the sculpture and layer the images together. The result is a photograph of the sculpture that looks like it is trapped in a blur or a technological computer glitch. These pieces embody a repetitive style that heavily juxtaposes the purpose of a singular classical sculpture. The modern look of Ferrarini’s pieces have somewhat of an eerie vibe to them.
