Talented French sculptor and restorer Alain Bellino creates extremely detailed, ornate bronze sculptures from metal leftovers. He transforms various old items such as cutlery or chandeliers by welding them into fascinating works of art.

Born in 1955, Bellino has been learning gold and silver plating and bronze restoration in his father’s workshop. Only in 2010, after years of practice and technical research, artist developed his personal style which was highly inspired by both Renaissance and steampunk. As described in his website:

“In his work of re-directing and re-assembling, which is both iconoclast and highly rigorous from a formal point of view, at the crossroads between past and future, Alain Bellino sublimates and rehabilitates the ornamentation.”

Various steampunk motifs and floral ornamented skulls are frequent objects in his work. Bellino’s vanitas are often infused with extra surrealism, for example castles and ships and mounting on top of skull sculptures. His latest work, the Darth Vader mask, demonstrates how delicately Bellino’s creations connect modern and antique worlds.

Sam Vanallemeersch- Two Styles, One Artist

Antwerp-based Sam Vanallemeersch has that rare ability to work in two distinct styles that feed and grow off of each other’s strengths. His one style, full of nuanced detail and dense atmospheres, can entertain the eye endlessly. His other style, which relies on simplified forms that tend to become entangled in a puzzle piece manner is equally as effective. Consistent throughout is an accessible body of work that retains all integrity no matter what approach he takes. His unstoppable production is the reason he has two separate websites packed to the gills, here and there. Jaw-droops.
