Claes oldenburg keynote Claes oldenburg keynote Presentation Transcript

  • CLAY & CLAES• Claes Oldenburg was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1929. He moved to America at the age of 1. He grew up in Chicago and attended the Chicago Institute of Art. Claes was very influential in the Pop Art Movement that glorified popular culture of the 1960’s. Pop Art is defined as a movement that glorified the realities of life or popular culture of the time. It spoke visually of the everyday person working and playing in the 1960’s. The media and advertising were favorite subjects for Pop Art artists. Andy Warhol was most likely the most recognized of all the Pop culture artists with his “Campbell Soup” and “Marilyn Monroe” series.• Claes Oldenburg’s sculptures emphasize visual spatial relationships with everyday objects. Playing with the scale of his creations, he liked to enlarge his artwork to extraordinary sizes.

  • • In this project, we are making an attempt at sculpting food out of clay exactly as it is in real life, to fool the viewer into believing that it is actually food. Once clay is formed, we will bisque fire and then paint food sculptures using acrylic paint.
