City invaded by Isaac Cordal’s tiny urban sculptures

In case you can’t tell, we’re fascinated by street artists, so when we found the work of Isaac Cordal we were pretty excited. His tiny cement sculptures could very well be at home indoors as installations. But the fact that they inhabit the same, outdoor environments that we do adds a whole other dimension. The use of cement not only makes them more long-lasting, but gives you the sense that they’ve risen up out of the cityscape around them. At the same time, the intimate scale makes the viewer afraid they could get stepped on or run over by a car at any second. You have to agree that they’re a little bit eerie, almost apocalyptic.
