Who doesn't like creepy human-esq statues in the street? Mark Jenkins is a genius and I love his sculptures of people that are so often over-looked. Jenkins highlights what we don't pay attention to, and although his inside sculptures are fascinating, it's the outside street works that really make me fall in love over and over again.
Jenkins wants us to question our environment and what's real and what's not. Several of the street art installations are dark, drawing on the homeless and melancholic, but always seem to be exciting still. It's this type of politically charged work that I really like, it highlights the problems and represents them in a concise way. So here's to Mark Jenkins and here's to changing the world.
