Giant objects. Claes Oldenburg is a Swedish sculptor who makes large replicas of everyday objects. He was born in 1929 and moved to Chicago in 1936. He went to Yale University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He's been associated with the Pop Art movement since the 1960s. He created most of his sculptures in collaboration with his late wife Coosje van Bruggen. More here.
This sculptour is by Claes Oldenburg. I like this sculptour becuase it is scary how it looks like the people are being swept away. I also like how the sculptour constantly looks like it is going to fall because it is on a slant and there is nothing holding it up.
