For those of you who like interior objects that combine extravagance with classical shapes, Adam Wallacavage‘s colorful Octopus Chandeliers are the ultimate design choice. Adam’s incredibly detailed surreal works haven been shown all around the globe, including São Paulo, Rome, London, Miami, Los Angeles, Vienna and New York.

In combination with the right wallpaper, Adam’s striking chandeliers make for a fanatstic underwater world, or if you prefer  pink, you get Barbie’s dreamhouse meets bizarre techno grotto, but the longer you stare at his spectacular lighting creations, the more alive they seem.

Born in 1969, Adam attended the University of Arts in Philadelphia and received a BFA in Photography in 1995. But working as a commercial photographer didn’t satisfy his artistic senses. So in 2001 he taught himself how to sculpt. The art of ornamental plastering has since been his passion and Adam’s one of a kind tentacle chandeliers are wildly popular now.

After casting the forms, the artist paints them with pigmented epoxy resin, iridescent powders, and even glitter. In a perfectly surrealist manner, his works end up making the originally monstrous, look like something playful and pretty.
