South Korean artist, Seo Young Deok creates beautifully accurate sculptures out of a single material, bicycle chain. He welds each chain in what becomes a long and intense process lasting months.  And while bicycle chains might be seen as a representation of the freedom a bicycle affords, Seo Young Deok’s sculptures seem heavy, damaged and oppressed.

His latest solo-exhibition, Dystopia, is currently travelling the world.  View more of his pieces at youngdeok.com.

  1. Wow, that is seriously impressive! It’s great to see an original idea well executed as the finished sculptures are beautiful.
