Meet Isaac Cordal, He Makes Post-apocalyptic Art With A Message

Meet Artist Isaac Cordal, He makes tiny sculptures that are found in the most unlikely of places: on top of buildings, in alleyways, on gutters, at bus stops. They are found in nooks and crannies around the world, and the gravity of their meaning is far greater than their size. They actually look like images from the production set of the wildly popular Post-apocalyptic TV show know as the Walking dead but they are not.

They are actually part of what the artist calls “intervention” of the Cement Eclipses series and he as been making working on them since 2008. Since then, he’s made approximately 60 “interventions” (Cordal’s word for the installations), published two books and brought his work to countries around the world

Cordal’s work is desolate, haunting and haunted, but that makes sense: He is fixated on environmental disaster and he uses his art, specifically his project “Waiting for Climate Change,” to bring that potential future into sharp focus.

In his work, small human figures seem to cope with a post-apocalyptic reality. According to the artist statement on Cordal’s site, “The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution.” It’s safe to say, Cordal succeeds.
