We’ve shared photos of Christiaan Nagel and his work with you before whether it be in a gallery setting or on the streets. The colorful fungi from the UK-based artist are instantly recognizable and are constructed from polyurethane, fiber glass, and stainless steel. For those who want a smaller version for their collection, he has released an edition (limited to 20) of shrooms for £25 each here. Discuss Christiian Nagel here. Via artbleat.

There is an element of randomness in any idea, that part we don’t have […]
We came across these sculptural street pieces recently from Christiaan Nagel placed last year scattered around on the East End in London. The colorful mushrooms are made from polyurethane, fiber glass, and stainless steel and are placed on top of buildings and roofs.
