Twist Tie Action Figures: Battle of the Bent

 |  |  |  April 21, 2013


While twist ties can come in handy for wrapping up cables or closing plastic bags, they’re pretty boring little things. But where you may see something of utility, one artist sees a medium for making wondrous sculptures.

In fact, artist Shota Katsube made not just one or two little action figures out of colored twist ties – he built an entire army out of them. All told, there are 300 of the little sculptures, each with unique weapons and stances. They measure from about 3 to 5 centimeters (~1.18″ to 1.96″) in height. They were made without any other structure besides the twist ties themselves, and can stand on their own.

You can see these incredible little sculptures on display at the Souzou: Outsider Art from Japan exhibit at London’s Wellcome Collection through June 30.
