  • Wood-Chip Artist

    Thought this was quite unique. A Russian artist who creates art from Siberian cedar wood-chips!

    CMD, those are incredible!  They look so damn real!  Reminds me of an artist in Mexico.  If anyone gets a chance, there is a suburb of Guadalajara, Jalisco called Tonola.  I saw the most amazing art work there, but the one that stood out to me reminds me of this guys art.  A guy down there made various birds our of strips of colored leather.  Looked really similar compared to these.  I wish I would have had a digital camera in my travels, I will try and find an example online.

        Wow, post more!  How much do they sell for?  Big bucks I'm sure.  Here's an example I found, but not the same artist I saw.  The ones I saw were more intricate and similar to the wood chip art, but this gives you an idea.

            Thanks for the parrots, Tyson! The article at the 2nd link says he turned down $17,000 for the eagle(sounds like a cheapskate offer to me!) and that it was not for sale. Man, talk about carving out a niche in the world of art!! More pics at the 2 links, Tyson.

                  Astounding!!!  Wood work that resembles feathers and animal coats!  So realistic.  I'm sitting here waiting for the birds to fly away and the animals to run off into the woods!

                    I went to the Getty Museum of Art in LA and there were some wood carvings there that would knock your lights out. These remind me of those.
