Salavat Fidai

Posted in craft, sculpture with tags , on July 5, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

When I was a child, occasionally I’d experiment with “shaping” my pencil point in different ways (which involved simply flattening or rounding one side more than the rest).

Salavat Fidai takes the possibilities of pencil points to a whole new level.

He is a master of miniatures (as evidenced by his other work in different categories on his site as well…but the pencils are the most impressive!).

You’ll find iconic buildings and familiar pop culture faces. In other words, the very largest…rendered the very smallest.

Kazuhiro Tsuji is a large scale hyperrealist sculptor, who taught himself to imitate life through trial, error and meticulous mimicry.

He is most famous for his portraits of Dali, Lincoln, Warhol and Dick Smith (his original mentor whom he contacted through Fangoria Magazine in 1987).

As a child, he dreamed of creating a store filled with toys and games, and it’s clear that hos work maintains a kind of childlike wonder and imagination.

But he also incorporates a great deal of nature and metamorphosis in his creations.

He says “The need to make people dream is an essential thing for me.” I feel he succeeds!

Many thanks to my friend Burton for introducing me to Anthony Howe, whose kinetic sculptures will make you feel like you’re looking at awe inspiring alien beings.

Trefoil

They stand alone as quality art in a still frame…but you must watch them move and come alive.
Switchback

No really…watch.

Check out the rest!

These gorgeous creatures are made of old Nintendo consoles! (Hopefully broken ones…I love the idea of re-purposing).
