Water-inspired steel sculptures make dramatic splashes

The elements can inspire some very beautiful works of art. A great example is this new collection of sculptures by Zheng Lu.

The Chinese artist takes inspiration from water, its versatile nature and ability to form organic shapes, and the art of Chinese calligraphy which he grew up learning as a child. Lu’s large sculptures are made from stainless steel and feature wave-like formations that defy the very laws of physics. A plaster base is gradually subjected to numerous laser-cut Chinese characters; and the final piece is capable of standing freely on the floor, or suspended in air.

The water sculptures are currently being exhibited at the Sundram Tagore Gallery in New York. Check out some cool photographs of them below, and visit his Artsy website for more.
