Sculptures of famous film directors fused with their main characters by Mike Leavitt

Mike Leavitt, an American visual artist from Seattle, has created an amazing series of figurative sculptures of famous film directors blended with their most iconic characters.

I love movies and I love art, the magic overwhelms me. Moviemakers are consumed by their work, similar to the way my own work overtakes my life. Whether a block of wood, a scene ending or film reel edit, every cut takes conviction. Directors endure pain tending to the light of photography, the story’s tension, the limits of money and the sacrifices to their vision. Trust in that vision is so powerful that they relinquish their anatomy. That’s why I sculpted their bodies physically devoured by their work.
