The Strange, Wonderful Creations of Spencer Hansen

The artist's creatures, informed by the natural world, inspire both wonder and affection

Multi-media artist Spencer Hansen makes playful, imaginative art inspired by the natural world. His charming collections invite us into an unknown world inhabited by wobbly four-legged friends, hugging loving fluffernutters, faceted space monkeys, and other oddly familiar yet friendly foreign creatures.

Created from a palette of repurposed materials melded with an intentional expression of duality—soft fur with hammered brass, ridged textures with delicate ceramic—his creations vibrate with colorful emotion as thoughtful designs spark curiosity and engagement. Kind, curious, introspective, and fun, his creatures imprint hearts and minds.
