How does the gorilla created? Without going into the slightest details, discover the main lines of its manufacture.
The basic material is of course the cardboard. Olivier Bertrand recovers packaging with different thicknesses, and he use the thickest to build the sculpture framework, and the finest for the details. To this basic material is added of course glue, flame retardant and finishing resin to stiffen the sculpture and guarantee its durability.
The Gorilla framework is designed in the style of the balsa models of our childhood. Slices of cardboard with notches to fit between them, and that’s it. For other pieces such as the Tiger, metal rods are integrated into the structure to allow the piece to hold in suspension.
