Wladyslaw Hasior was a Polish sculptor that died at the age of 71 in 1999. His art is shocking to say the least, with sculptures that use many found objects that touch on topics of industrialization. I am drawn to these works because it combines childhood objects, like a Kewpi doll and a stroller and desecrates them somehow. This is understandable consider her was born in 1928, thus growing up and coming of age in war torn Europe. The combining of found objects I find interesting also, compiling a 3D collage of objects to tell interesting stories, juxtaposing the seemingly innocent next to objects that almost defile it.
