Notes


Schoony exploded onto the London art scene in 2008, thanks to an extensive street art installation composed of his hyper-realistic plastic sculptures. Often figural, his leitmotif of a shirtless boy soldier wears an oversized military helmet, constructed by extensive life-casting techniques in a variety of different mediums, including plastic, bronze, and gold. Schoony’s imagery incorporates themes of commercialism, violence, and kitsch into its content, exploring contemporary Western society’s detached relationship to warfare.

Accolades:

Since the age of fifteen he has worked on over a hundred films in cinematic special effects, including Harry Potter, Gladiator, Where the Wild Things Are, Saving Private Ryan, and Star Wars just to name a few.
