Artist Christopher Labrooy – From Shrink Wrap To A Taste Festival

by Sherry Riter in Art  

Christopher Labrooy transforms materials to develop ‘useless beautiful objects’ which are works of art that draw in your attention. The variations in theme and overall feeling of the pieces are wide, but the appeal is great. He was born in Aberdeen and graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art in London.


I love the tongue! It is just too cute!


The little people drew my attention to this piece as I thought about the book “Gulliver’s Travels”.

Shrink Wrap

Yes! Please come over and shrink wrap my vacuum so that I don’t have to use it any more!

Felt Chandelier

Cute idea with simple materials.

Taste Festival

Of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share the “Taste Festival” especially since I just LOVE food!

Mmmmm….now I’m craving some chocolate.

I like this post , some of it, but I just read the chuckle of the day!!!! The hearing aid one it cracked me up. Made me think of Dr Reichel in Texas. He gave me a perscription for suppositories for my fever. He then told me to make sure I took the foil off before using. I said , do you think I am a nut? He laughed and told me he gave some to a patient for hemorroids , she called back in a few days and told him she was in so much pain. She came in, he discovered she did not remove the foil, ouch!! So he said he always tells every one to remove the foil. I laughed my butt off that day, and he laughed to tears. I will be careful Sherry and not use
any thing in my ears,lol, lol

Wow, these are fantastic!

The creativity that artists have stuns me. I wish I had one wee bit of that kind of creativity.
