Anthony Chun’s paper maché heads are currently on display at Antai Gallery/Scoops in East Hollywood, Los Angeles.

Anthony began making paper maché animal heads based upon Chinese zodiac animals as gifts for his muse/comrade Ji Sung Kim and their precious daughters Karina and Fiona. After making several more animal heads, he decided to build trophies inspired by Kaiju—the giant creatures from Japanese monster movies. This allowed greater experimentation with form and color. The trophies are made with cardboard boxes, masking tape, newspaper, flour, water, paper mache clay and Martha Stewart craft paint.

“The centerpieces of his show, The Magic Forest, are two XL Kaiju trophies. Conjuring the chimerical beauty of a speculative natural world memorialized by anime and monster films, these sculptures speak to our desire for an unnatural wilderness that both resists and corresponds to our technological age.”
-Ji Sung Kim
