French artist Xavier Veilhan’s work often explores music and musicians and expresses them in figurative sculpture. He’s created multiple series of musicians and producers, leveraging a unique intersection of cutting-edge and classic processes. Using 3D scanning, printing, and CNC machining, he’s rendered actual producers in simple, yet expressive monochromatic sculpture. The subjects included Brian Eno, Nigel Godrich, Quincy Jones, Rick Rubin, and – apropos of this auction – The Neptunes. Up for bids here is one of those pieces. Aptly titled “The Neptunes” Xavier has immortalized Chad and Pharrell in black-tinted polyurethane resin.
