Mad Hatter: Finn Stone's unique artworks made from everyday objects

Finn Stone isn't just an acclaimed artist with a unique style (always wearing a specially designed hat from the creative maverick Vivianne Westwood), he is also one of today's most creative, contemporary artists.

Now you can enjoy seeing some of his works in a new exhibition at Mayfair's Imitate Modern gallery. Entitled Mad Hatter, the show will bewitch you into Stone's world of fascinating paintings and sculptures, some of which have never been seen.

Spanning the mediums of fibreglass, wood, and glass to re-purposing everyday items such as paintbrushes and LEGO, well-known works by Picasso, Van Gogh, Warhol, and Hirst have become three-dimensional artworks in Stone's creative world: whether they are made from hundreds of paint brushes or are Hirst-esque sharks with multicoloured chicken pox.

Finn began his career in 1999 with the Ball Chair, which quickly went on to become an iconic, design classic. The constant experimenting and exploring of different mediums has lead to what Finn describes as a "Battle between control and excess", balancing spontaneous creation with creative control.

An indisputable master of mediums, Stone's work rejects the banal and instead re-imagines all aspects of life to mirror his surreal imagination. Finn Stone's Mad Hatter runs until 12 November 2018 at Mayfair's Imitate Modern gallery.
