7 Amazing Plasticine ArtistsSep 16, 2022 Scroll to read in 1 minute
Be warned. This article isn’t about animation; it’s Plasticine’s time to shine. For many, Plasticine probably makes you think of school and the lingering rubbery smell it left on your fingers or when you had a crack at making Aardman-style characters. You most likely won’t associate it with art. Below are seven artists working with Plasticine whose work is inspirational and worth a follow.
1. Wilfrid Wood
Wilfrid Wood is a London-based artist who began his career building latex heads for the mordant TV programme, Spitting Image. His charming and quirky Plasticine portraits are well worth a follow.
2. Henry Hudson
Henry Hudson‘s artworks look just like oil paintings on giant canvases from a distance. The British artist turned to Plasticine as a student because he couldn’t afford expensive oil paints.
3. Evan Hudson
Another artist that turned to Plasticine because they couldn’t afford oil paint is the Toronto-based artist Evan Hudson, whose work ranges from the surreal to the fanciful.
4. Barbara Reid
Barbara Reid is a picture book illustrator and author whose award-winning artwork is created entirely with Plasticine.
5. Ana Villalba
Ana Villalba’s illustrations and figures are made in Plasticine for advertising, editing, scientific projects and private commissions.
