Chris Mitton is a British sculptor whose work focuses on gritty, everyday objects. Take a look at his series ‘Revalue’, a celebration of the transitory in modern life.

Realistic sculptures can be found in almost every artistic context and timeframe. Back since the Palaeolithic times humans have been crafting figures that resemble themselves or the animals around them, and this tradition continued all the way through classical Greece and Rome to the famed sculptors of the Renaissance such as Michelangelo.
