Chris Gilmour is an English artist specialising in the creation of life-sized sculptures made of recycled cardboard and glue, using both plain packaging cardboard and recycled packaging material. His works replicate in painstaking detail many objects and machines out of our ordinary lives, ranging from objects from daily life, such as bicycles, motorbikes, cars, cafetieres, chairs, etc. to small models of religious architecture.
Through his career and artistic development, there has been a progression in the choice of objects portrayed by Gilmour, which go from smaller domestic items to objects which are larger and belong to a broader cultural context like the Fiat 500, the Lambretta and the James Bond Aston Martin.
