London based artist, Schoony ‘Boy Soldier’ art piece is now available to buy as a 3D print from Shapeways! This Boy Solider has been seen all around the world and now you can get your own.
Schoony took the London art scene by storm in 2008 at mutate Britain’s one foot in the grove on portobello road with his life cast sculptures ‘boy soldiers’. Since then, his new found career has gone from strength to strength. Schoony’s Boy Soldier can be seen in KICKASS 2 and ‘Little Favour’ starring Benidict Cumberbatch. His art has universal meaning for all walks of life. He is one of few artists that use the discipline of life casting as an art form.
