Giant objects. Claes Oldenburg is a Swedish sculptor who makes large replicas of everyday objects. He was born in 1929 and moved to Chicago in 1936. He went to Yale University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He's been associated with the Pop Art movement since the 1960s. He created most of his sculptures in collaboration with his late wife Coosje van Bruggen. More here.
I saw this at Jerry's Artarama Art Bar last week to hold colored pencils....It is cut tubes of PVC pipe glued together in holder. I thought it was really cool and could be adapted to hold bruses or paint tubes too,
