SculpturWorx Studio in Houston, Texas is one of our favorite places to take photographs. As soon as we co-purchased a beta version Gigapan we started planning a SculptrWorx panorama.
The parking lot of the studio is full of amazing concrete sculptures. Each of the 20-foot tall Presidents heads weighs 3½-tons. The Beatles sculptures in the background are nearly 40 feet high and weighing close to 5 tons each.
The creator of these amazing sculptures is 82-year-old artist David Adickes, David is Houston’s unofficial “artist in residence.” His sculpture portfolio includes a 67-feet tall Sam Houston statue near Huntsville, “The Virtuoso” a 36-foot concrete sculpture of a cello player, and statue of an ex-girlfriend, who used to be a Playboy model.
Adickes is also an excellent musician and writer. He made his living primarily through painting until 10 years ago. His oils and sculptures are displayed in ten major art museums across America and in many countries, as well as private collections.
