Street Sculptures: D*Face’s Inglourious Oscars

Yesterday, the Oscars prize giving ceremony took place in Los Angeles and yes, I was not surprised that Christoph Waltz got his Oscar for his “Inglourious Basterds” Nazi-part, because in conclusion he’s an Austrian…

However, also British street artist D*Face visited LA. During the last days, he installed two skeleton-like Oscar sculptures, each about two meters high and now referred as “Zombie Oscars”.

As you maybe know, D*Face loves skulls and skeletons – What’s the intention behind that interesting installations, D*Face told NBC Los Angeles:

“The Oscar ceremony represent the pinnacle of superficiality within the so-called “film industry,” where formula and money triumphs over independent creativity and risk. These sculptures are donated to all the actors, actresses and filmmakers of the City of Lost Angels whose talents will never see the light of day.

Never give up the struggle, believe in your dreams, try and break the system and remember if all else fails, resort to plastic surgery – it seems to work!?!” (D*Face)
