FANTASY FROM AGING KNOWLEDGE AND A NEW PERSPECTIVE - Guy Laramee

In the Bank Holiday lull, before shopping and the next mincepie, I found myself (again) inspired by art.

Enter into the world created by Guy Laramee.



Multi-talented, this artist can sing, sculpt, paint and write.

He excavates encyclopaedias that are dense with aging knowledge and old perspectives, until he reveals the fantastic.

His most famous carved landscapes and structures are Biblios and The Great Wall.

The old books could have been landfill or pulp, Guy Laramee has taken old knowledge and made it timeless. Every image is fiction made by imagination, art and science: science-fiction :D


WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD HAPPEN TO OLD BOOKS?

Of course, first I'd like to make some old books of my own ;)
