Darick Maasen is one twisted individual. He takes iconic childhood characters and brings them to life, sort of, by creating mock “taxidermy” figures. Although Maasen is proficient in various mediums, it is his sculptures that grip you by the eyeballs and keep them locked with no sign of ever letting go.

Although Maasen’s figures are reminiscent of a Frankenstein workshop, he gives the right touch of realism to these childhood imaginations; manifesting pieces that evoke intrigue and send a slight chill down your spine.
