The charm of Kristof Wickman‘s studio in Bushwick lies in the details. On first view being your somewhat typical Bushwick studio used by emerging New York artists – somewhat spacious, somewhat light, industrial area, creepy stairway, – on closer inspection the space features stuffed animals (tucked away in canvas bags) and curious cut outs of photos and such, which are existing besides and among his tools and works in progress. The subtle sense of humor characteristic for his sculptures and installations are not only felt in Wickman the person, but extended into his work environment.
