Crychloids

Metallic Art Imitating Life

 

David Cerny’s Crychloids are larger than life humanoids frozen at play on and around the Miura Hotel in the Czech village of Celadna.  The silver shining cubic characters are the perfect accents to the sharp-edged steel structure of the hotel which mimics the pointed backdrop of the Beskydy Mountains.

The Miura Hotel is an ultra modern spa facility with interior walls featuring high end art from the likes of Andy Warhol, so it is only fitting that the exterior is a playground for the amazing work of David Cerny.  Crychloids appear around the Miura hotel like giant luminous beings possibly here from another planet in order to enjoy a scenic holiday.
