Most people don’t know what they want to do with their lives when they’re 20, but Callum Donovan Grujicich isn’t most people. This kid is only 12 years old, and he looks like he has already found his biggest passion – sculpture.
“I started making things when I was about two years old,” Callum says. “I made sculptures out of fabric.” As time went on, Callum’s artistic expression has evolved. “I started experimenting with making my own clay out of toilet paper, dry wool compound, mineral oil and glue.”
Later, the boy took things even further and began putting together a different materials. “I like to use a lot of found objects. Whenever I go outside I’m always scavenging for bits of metal. I’m always looking on the ground for them.”
You could say Callum’s figurines look melancholic or even creepy. Either way, you wouldn’t be wrong. “People always ask what my sculptures mean but I don’t really like to talk about meaning. I want people to decide what they think it means instead of me telling them.”
