Robin Antar, the Brooklyn artist who is famous for her stone sculptures of realism, was recently featured in the New York Daily News. With her humongous representational sculpture of a bag of potato chips in the final stages of work, the media saw it fit to talk about her and her body of work to the masses.
Prior to her potato chips sculpture, Ms. Antar has sculpted other delicious contemporary sculptures that represent American culture. These sculptures include M&M’s, a York Peppermint Pattie, Milano Cookies, Oreo’s, and a Heinz Ketchup bottle. In addition to these modern sculptures of realism, Ms. Antar has also sculpted abstract sculptures that are pleasing to the eyes and that serve as great centerpieces to any room.
Whatever the sculpture is, you can always be assured that Ms. Antar is going to give her all to it so that her vision can come to life for everyone to enjoy. Each and every detail that goes into her stone sculptures requires tremendous concentration and precision to get it just right. Once her sculpture of the bag of potato chips (which has taken over 10 years to sculpt) is complete, you are going to be able to see the hard work that was put into it.
Not a day goes by where Ms. Antar isn’t improving on her craft, and the plethora of sculptures that she has to show is a testament to the kind of artist and person that she is. If you ever get the chance to see her work in person, don’t pass up on the opportunity because it will truly blow you away.
