Childhood was a time when our imaginations were simply limitless. Back then, we saw things in a manner that adults just can’t seem to appreciate. We created this little world of ours where everything seemed to be possible. Fancied by the thought of fantasies being real, surely it left our childhood memories much more happier.
The creative adult is the child who survived – Ursula K. Le Guin
Well, looks like Gilbert Legrand, an Illustrator and sculptor in France, really survived the transition period and lived to tell how he sees everyday ordinary objects in a somewhat creative and humorous manner. As a child, Legrand always saw playful characters in many things around him. In fact, he also invented toys out of domestic utensils. With such imagination, he was able to create a series of whimsical sculptures made out of ordinary household objects. All his creations embody an inventive humor and quirky interpretation — probably in a way that you haven’t seen yet. By painting additional details on these objects, he helps us see what he sees in these things. There are definitely more to these objects than just mundane utensils. See for yourself.
