Jean Dubuffet Sculpture

"Welcome Parade" was created by the French artist Jean Dubuffet and is on display
in Manhattan. I thought it was a great example of a combination of 3D and 2D elements. Dubuffet's sculptures were based on doodles he would make while on the phone. They were transformed into monumental sculpture using lightweight materials and vinyl paint. It's interesting how they retain the flatness of the paper, and even though they gain thickness and weight, their material keeps them from becoming heavy.
