About / Artist Bio
Ferdi B Dick, Started off as a 3D animator and subsequently moved towards physical crafted sculpture. The result of these creative feats is a body of work that plays superbly in the overlap between digital and tangible, three-dimensional creatures with exaggerated features and forms that are directly influenced from cartoons and animation. He uses innocent childlike characters and forms with strong personal emotion connection thus re-appropriating popular culture and placing it in the visual arts.
His sculptures are largely character-driven, with a comical, childlike and edgy quality. They start out as digital models, find material form via 3D printing, and finally are cast in bronze.
Ferdi currently lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa.
