WOOD SCULPTURES BY ARON DEMETZ

For years, Aron Demetz (facebook) has been focusing on the human figure, on contemporary characters which appear to be frozen in poses of the antique portraiture or paralysed in bizarre postures. Aron uses traditional woodcarving techniques to convey his preoccupation with humanity’s relationship to nature. In his work he eschews the classical opposition of human and nature, and allows the two to become an inseparable whole, evoking the primordial experience.

FLORAL SKULL LEATHER SCULPTURE

Artist Jacky Tsai - "Born in Shanghai, in 1984, Jacky Tsai came to London after completing a BA at the China Academy of Art to study at Central St Martins, quickly making an impact on the fashion world with his iconic Floral Skull design made for Alexander McQueen.  Tsai’s vision is to create an unique marriage between traditional Eastern craftsmanship with contemporary Western pop art.  His time at McQueen, where he worked in pattern design for the brand, created a fascination with fashion and textiles. Printing his striking images on silk, rather than paper, saw his floral skull image achieve critical acclaim." (more)

IMPRESSIVE WOOD SCULPTURES BY GEHARD DEMETZ

In just a few years, Gehard Demetz has risen to international prominence by applying his incredible craftsmanship as a traditional woodcarver to subjects that are new and appealing to contemporary viewers. His sculptures of children are at the same time attractive and disquieting and rendered with an amazing  perfection that is by no means rhetorical or classical. One of the most startling technical features is the construction using small woodblocks and juxtaposing finely polished parts to very rough and sketchy surfaces.

Marc started creating these disturbing shadowbox dioramas rather late in his career, recurring themes include libraries, furnaces, laboratories, submarines and intestine-like tubing in lonely, decaying spaces.

THE INTERNATIONAL STREET ART OF SLINKACHU

London-based artist Slinkachu (facebook / blog- For an artist whose work frequently represents the themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living. In 2006, Slinkachu embarked on the first of his street art installation campaigns: The Little People Project. His miniature figures are left to fend for themselves in the bustling city, where they are then photographed and left to the abandon of their urban environment. These figures embody the estrangement spurred by the over-whelming nature of the modern metropolis, and incite a renewed perspective of the everyday urban experience to those who find them.

SKULL SUGARED IV BY JIRI GELLER

Strongly inspired by pop culture, Finnish artist Jiri Geller - "While - not inaccurately - self-defining as "an outsider, a punk rocker", Geller is also the rare Finnish artist who has both managed to stay close to Finnish aesthetic strengths and traditions and also detonate his own unique brand of post-national, mind-fucker nihilism."

BOOK SCULPTING BY ALEXANDER KORZER-ROBINSON

Artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson - “Through my work in the tradition of collage I am pursuing a very personal obsession of creating narrative scenarios in small format. By using antiquarian books, it makes the work simultaneously an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia. I make book sculptures / cut books by working through a book, page by page, cutting around some of the illustrations while removing others. In this way, I build my composition using only the images found in the book.”
