Apparently Lego gave him the pieces without knowing too much about his true intentions and alas, refused to have anything to do with him when they realized it. There’s a whole bunch of other amazing work on his site, like this little hairy baby that you can shave. By the way, we at Beautiful/Decay in no way shape or form, support Facism or baby-shaving..

Interview: Olivier Blanckart

Olivier Blanckart’s works are fashioned using every day materials, such as construction paper, cardboard and tape. These non-confrontational, nostalgic, children’s craft oriented materials, alongside the humorous quality of the works, are effective tools of seduction. Once Blanckart reels the viewer in, with his jovial aesthetic, it becomes clear that a darker, disturbed political commentary underlies, canonizing and raising up figures for inspection and in many cases, subversion. It is this two-pronged attack– drawing in with the a unique pop sensibility, then attacking with sharp-witted critique– that makes Blanckart’s works truly compelling.
