Hashtag Sculpture by Irena Tone
This hashtag sculpture by Irena Tone and Ros Kozhman celebrates the iconic character which is an integral part of our world. Certainly the ‘internet generation’ is so skilled in using keyboard symbols and characters that many even ‘speak’ using these terms.
A hashtag or “#” as it is more commonly known is essential for social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram. The symbol is immediately recognised and has an attractive geometry.
Irena’s Hashtag sculpture is handmade from steel and covered in imitation gold leaf. It stands on a large marble base which contrasts beautifully with the gold. This remarkable hashtag sculpture was a finalist for the INNER WORLD Competition, Boomer Gallery (London, the UK).

Hashtag Sculpture Artist
Irena Tone is an award-winning contemporary artist originally from Ukraine. After achieving the Global Talent Visa UK, in the field of Arts and Culture, she has settled in the UK.
New ideas for her artwork arise from the world and objects surrounding her. In particular, Irena is drawn towards spherical objects. She is amazed and inspired by the fact that our entire Universe and every object in it consists of spheres: molecules and atoms. A simple form builds a complex one. She turns this idea on its head so that her sculptures represent complex things in simple forms. For example, her bear sculpture consists of only 7 simple metal balls, but this stark minimalism does not stop making him a bear.
Irena’s style takes a minimalistic abstract style for all her works: starting from her ‘women’s essence’ paintings and ending with her sculptures.

“The world and the objects around me inspire my art. My process involves deconstructing those objects into minimalistic layers. My artworks evolve into a characterful representation of usual life. By enlarging, exaggerating, or using metaphors my work invites you to take a fresh look at the nature of familiar things”.
