Yong Ho Ji

Yong Ho Ji is a Korean sculptor who uses old, recycled tire scraps as his medium to make amazing sculptures. He chooses animals that are often seen as “monsters,” then obsesses over every detail to try to “restore them to their natural beauty.”

“My concept is mutation—mutants”, he explains. His Chelsea studio is filled with hyenas, horses, felines, and a ram’s head. They’re all built from black tires. The product is from nature,” from the white sap of latex trees. “But here it’s changed. The color is black. The look is scary.”
