Innovative Barnston-based sculptor Kevin Sweeney is finding his unusual methodology is reaping the rewards. “I basically use all the products you would use for spraying cars,” said the 44-year-old.
These shiny creations are not only eye-catching, but he has also had plenty of success at getting them displayed. His first creations were exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art in London and recent pieces have been shown at Stansted Airport.
The sculptures are modelled with chicken wire and fibreglass before being spray painted.
