Spoonbridge and Cherry
Influences for his works

-
Fast food
was getting popular in the 1950s which inspired the
theme
of his artworks.
- Made his first sculpture (
Giant Hamburger
) using 4 pieces of sailcloth.
- Used
ordinary images and objects
from the everyday world and made it
extraordinary


Influences on today's artists
dropped cone
Claes Oldenberg
Stainless and galvanized steels, fiber-reinforced plastic, balsa wood; painted with polyester gelcoat

1. Orest Keywan
in his sculpture of a melting ice cream truck
similar to Oldenburg's "dropped cone"

2. Peter Anton
In his artwork ‘spilled ice cream sundae”,
similar to Oldenburg's "profiterole"

3. Vincent Olinet,
Vincent Olinet’s series of monumental cakes.
similar to Oldenburg's "pastry case"



Claes is happy because he celebrated his 85th birthday on January 28, last Tuesday !!!
Most of the items were made of vinyl

He worked at a fast food restaurant

Successfully made a BLT sandwich look unique
the sculpture is horizontal so as not to dominate other -sculptures in the park.
this artwork gives us a sense of motion.

The word "cone" was the hidden letters on Cologne

More public attention for the shopping mall

Not very successful because people would not know the significance
