It’s David Lynch’s 70th birthday today. About time someone gave that hardworking Renaissance man a statue!

Carl Lyon, a Los Angeles-based professional special makeup effects artist who worked on well-known shows such as Dexter, Grimm, and Modern Family, recently dedicated his personal time to sculpting a life-size bust of one of his heroes. “I fell in love with David Lynch films and Twin Peaks in 1995 when I was a freshmen in high school and have been in love ever since,” the artist tells Welcome to Twin Peaks.

Cast in a hard resin with faux bronze finish, the tribute is based on present-day David Lynch, exhibiting what the director himself describes as “pretty much [his] worst vice.”


The bust is on display until February 6, 2016 at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, for the CONJOINED 666 exhibition curated by Chet Zar.
