Adalberto Abbate's Macabre Micro Sculptures

Adalberto Abbate's micro sculptures are dioramas of the macabre and disturbing (like scenes of accidents, riots, shootings, and more).

reminds me a lot of this piece by the chapman brothers, but not quite as powerful.

Anyone watch CSI? I know they take their ideas from real life events some times, but if I was this artist I wouldnt be happy...
That said, I think the minitures are really neat - you always expect minitures to be cute. Ha! Take that doll houses!

I dunno... I would be a lot more impressed if he actually "sculpted" some of these out of some raw materials. Pulling people and buildings off the model train layout in his basement and merely arranging them into crash scenes is something lots of 13 year olds have done. They are really stretching the definition of sculpture...

Check out the song Cheer it On by Tokyo Police Club. I saw the picture and was immediately reminded of this.

sorry about the long link.
