In order to appreciate good art I usually take into consideration a lot of things. It must be creative, unique, detailed and it must be something that not everyone could easily follow. The subjects for this inspiring sculptures astounded me very much not because it is created by someone who is a master of art but because it is truly unique in every way.
The material used for this sculptures can be bought from the supermarket or even from the street vendors. What made these sculptures unique is the pain staking method the sculptor went through to achieve very detailed models of object, animals or bust from a very unstable material.
This porcupine sculpture is one of the few models which really amazed me. I could not imagine myself attaching every single one of those spine to the whole model. I simply don't have the patience to do this and I also have very shaky hand. (thanks to my addiction to coffee)
This sculpture of a bear is even more intricate then the previous one. It must have taken the artist a month placing every single piece of fur to the sculpture.
If I were to create a gum art I would most probably pick a very simple subject. It would definitely be an egg or a rock.hehehe This is why I decided to write a post about this art cause I simply admire the creativity and patience of the artist to create such intricate pieces of art.
