The Question Mark


A collaborative anti-gravity sculpture by MOBSTR + KARBORN.

Hand-made by the artists from a unique concrete composite, available in both raw concrete, or finished with ‘floated’ pigment - true International Klein Blue. 

‘International Klein Blue uses an completely matte, synthetic resin binder which suspends the color and allows the pigment to maintain as much of its original qualities and intensity of color as possible.’

The figure may be placed almost anywhere on the sculpture, upside-down or even side-ways. 

Signed & numbered Edition /20.
24 x 15 x 11cm.

*raw concrete versions vary from piece to piece.
