“Crossing Abbey Road” by Georges Monfils is constructed using approximately 10,000 vinyl records. The top half of each sculpture contains about 2,000 hand-cut records and the bottom half contains about 450 melted records. The records are either hand-cut using a speed scroll saw and pliers or molded using a professional heat gun.
You are looking at the only life-sized recreation of The Beatles album cover in the world; each member of the band has been built to meet their exact heights. This incredible sculpture set displays Georges Monfils’ iconic Pop Neauveu style: a stark departure from the mass produced, factory pop world into a radical, avant-garde haven where true originality is born. Monfils focuses on sculpting universal pop culture icons that are instantly recognizable to all, while simultaneously invoking a sense of wonder and curiosity about how they are constructed.
