ferdi b dick
ferdi b. dick produces sculpture evoking a dystopian cartoon world.
his character-driven body of work and fluid forms reflect his background as a 3d animator.
rather than a celebration of mass culture these figures become wistful musing on childhood, innocence and memories of bygone days. while they might appear playful, his sculptures deal with the uneasiness brought about by suppressed emotions.
a sought-after animator who has produced work for multiple major brands, ferdi is also a self-taught maker who enjoys working with his hands. he lives and works in cape town, south africa.
