Isaac Cordal – Cement Eclipses


Since 2006 Isaac Cordal has been leaving his cement sculptures on the streets of Europe.  You may well have walked past one of his installations but you can be forgiven for not noticing it.

Isaac Cordal …is a sculpture artist from London. His sculptures take the form of little people sculpted from concrete in ‘real’ situations. Cordal manages to capture a lot of emotion in his vignettes, in spite of their lack of detail or colour.

He is sympathetic toward his little people and we empathise with their situations, their leisure time, their waiting for buses and their more tragic moments such as accidental death, suicide or family funerals.

His sculptures can be found in gutters, on top of buildings, on top of bus shelters – in many unusual and unlikely places in the capital.

This book is the first time his images have been shown in together in one book dedicated to his work. Many images never seen before Cordal’s concrete sculptures are like little magical gifts to the public that only a few lucky people will see and love but so many more will have missed.
