Thomas Hoffmann / Tom's Drag: Zodiac sign sculpture ‘Löwe/Leo’, hand-painted artificial marble

Astrology of Pop Art: Tom’s funny colorful zodiac signs.
The strident works of art from the workshop of Thomas (‘Tom’) Hoffmann are full of pure individualism: they deliberately break the rigid everyday rules and spread good mood. And as each person has their own destiny, Tom’s zodiac signs are highly individual creatures: the scorpion rarely draws its charming and vital sting, the lion seldom proudly shows its gold colored mane. ‘Stay where you are!’ the ‘Zodiacs’ cry to the viewer, ‘and do it with pride!’

Sculpture cast by hand into marmorin and elaborately painted by hand. Height 12 cm.

“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.

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.
