He's also been working with young British artist Stuart Sandford on a new project titled, "Sebastian 2012" which will immortalise the model as an 8 feet statue. Taking its main inspirations from the Greco-Roman depictions of the youth Antinous, Michelangelo’s David and Charles Ray’s Boy with Frog, this project is both an exploration of contemporary representations of the masculine form and a comment on the icon and its place in contemporary culture.
Alongside the finished statue, which will stand around 8 feet (243 cm) tall, a number of smaller 20 inch (50 cm) limited edition scale models and 8 inch (20 cm) scale models from the same mould will also be pro- duced and sold to fund the production of the full-size statue. Once completed, the statue will be exhibited initially in London and then internationally.
Sebastian's boyish yet masculine appearance coupled with a classical look is ideal for a project that not only takes its inspiration from classical sculpture but also reflects the definition of male beauty in the 21st Century.
We don't want to reveal too much so head here for more details and information on how to support this special project.
