“The life brings colorful, but also bizarre and many-sided experiences every day” mentions the artist Thomas A. (Tom) Hoffmann. The pop artist provides some of these sides as independent: his supremely colorful furniture objects and light sculptures surprise with details; he stylized cool urban types with his funny animal sculptures that are as they are - and do not care about trends and change of fashion. Tom designed them as smart colorful animal figures. It started with some home-made Christmas presents. Later the artist remembered them in his studio and started to create: "Weird", lovingly detailed furniture objects and sculptures, where he embodied his love for the Flower Power Generation. Meanwhile, there appeared a considerable collection of individual, witty, often also provocative objects from his eccentric "Drags". All of them have one thing in common: they break rigid everyday rules and radiate good mood.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Marble powder bound by a polymer. Artificial marble is characterized by a fine white surface that comes very close to marble.
