Artist of the moment…….Frederick Prescott

Fredrick Prescott is an exciting artist born in 1949 renown for his work with kinetic sculpture. The works of Prescott are meant to be touched by the viewer. What I enjoy about his art is the liveliness and well drawn aspects of the work. The artist works with some studio assistants and is based out of Hawaii. Prescott usually constructs works out of steel that involve crowds of people.

Price range information: Works range from $2,000 to $45,000.

If I had to compare this artist to another artist it would be Red Grooms. Red Grooms has the same cartoony and whimsical style of drawing. Below are some examples of Red Grooms.

In this clip we view one Frederick Prescott’s famed kinetic animal sculptures of a buffalo! The movement makes the steel come to life.

What a fascinating artist!
