Amanda Visell x Coarse –- Last Days of Winter


In addition to their awesome ‘First Days of Despair’ collabo piece which we wrote about a little while ago, Amanda Visell and Coarse also showcased a second large-scale sculpture at the recent Blooom art fair in Cologne, Germany.  ‘The Last Days of Winter’ features an innocent mountain creature at the mercy of children and squirrels determined to exploit it.   As with the previous piece, this one was designed by Amanda and then sculpted by Coarse.  What’s next ?  Something very owlsome.
