The FUROBOT Series
The FUROBOT series is a collection of sculptures created by Taiwanese artist Keng Fu Chu, who resides in the Washington, D.C. area. The series began in 2010 and continues to this day. These robots, some sitting, and some standing, break free from flat digital illustrations and come to life in three-dimensional space. They are full of vitality and childlike wonder as if they are telling one story after another.
Among these sculptures are the Royal Guard robot wearing large headgear and holding a "Sold out" sign, the busy single Cow Daddy and mischievous Cow Baby, the Waterproof and Non-waterproof robots that make people smile, the Robot Prince and the King and Queen who emerge from the earth, and even the Cheese Bouncing Robot and the Savage Ninja inspired by children's drawings.
Over the decades, Keng Fu continues to create art, using sculpture to tell stories and convey his imagination about life and the environment through his unique worldview of the robot world.
