Vincent Olinet and his extravagant sculptures

At first glance, Vincent Olinet's mixed-media sculptures of pretty things like layer cakes, four-poster fairy beds and glossy lipsticks are seductive, but upon closer look they reveal a subversive side. The cakes have collapsed in a gooey mess, the beds have been left outside to rot in the rain, and the lipsticks are sloppoly varnished. "I like to make shiny, colorful art pieces that appeal to our dreams and urges but actually deal with decay or disillusion", says the Brussels-based artist.
