About the artwork
CSS 104 Jl. Rainer was originally trained as an interior architect, but in 2005 he discovered his passion for welding. Despite having turned to sculpture later in his career, his signature technique has earned him critical acclaim and recognition around the globe. This involves the use of small hollow steel squares, which are welded together to create aspects of the human form. Rainer uses this unique technique for this work to create a myriad of brightly coloured skulls, which simultaneously demonstrates their fragility and solidity.
