IF Kids :: Pencil as Sculpture and Installation



The pencil is more than a tool for a fabulous drawing or story.  In the case of this colorful art installation titled “Reverse City” by Cameroon-born artist  Pascale Marthine Tayou,  the pencil is the base for art itself.

I love these sculptures by Motohiro Tomii.  Dozens upon dozens of colored pencil incased in acrylic forms.



Jonna Pohjalainen‘s art is joyful.  As she says, “While you sharpen your pencils you can see time passing by. Colours bring joy and happiness in our everyday life.”   So true!jonna_pohjalainen
