More Under The Hood by Calvin Ma

I have seen Calvin Ma‘s work around the internet for a while and i like his style. “More Under The Hood” is his latest work and it’s centred around the Falcon. The sculpture itself is ceramic and 9″ by 5″ by 8″. Unfortunately, it’s $2, 200 price tag puts it well out of my price range.

  • Homebodies: Recollective: “My work draws inspiration from the toys and action figures I had growing up. As an introverted and socially awkward kid, the plastic heroes, villains and their vehicles helped me cope with my inability to socialize. They served as an escape for me and soon became a passion. Now, as an introverted and socially awkward adult, I create artwork that reflects on the struggles I have with social anxiety. Those toys have become a visual reference in my work and in a way, still help me cope. ‘Homebodies: Recollective’ is a continuation of the series I’ve been working on, but incorporates pop culture related vehicles. Movies and cartoons were also welcome distractions growing up, so I thought it would be interesting to pair more recognizable elements with my work.” ~Calvin Ma
