Twigs are good for lighting fires, roasting marshmallows, and it turns out they make art. Using found twigs, London-born Chris Kenny makes dancing figures, famous and not-so-famous saints, even a baby.
Kenny is committed to his art. For the last 5 years, he has been doing fun twig portraits every day and has posted them on Instagram. @twigsaints.
In Chris’s words, “These fragile little figures writhe in agony or ecstasy and come together like a portrait of humanity with all our energy and sensuality, our arrogance and illusion.”
You I definitely want to check more of his work, especially since it is not just twigs Kenny works with, but various humble materials: “scraps taken from books or maps, photographs or discarded books.”
However, for now, let’s take a look at some of those unique twig figurines you’ve been creating.
