The art of working with wood is a different form of art and an extremely rare talent. It is the natural material that is the main element in manufacturing furniture, as well as the raw material used to make so many unique works of art. Peter Demetz is an Italian wood artist who is an expert in wood art and knows everything about it. Using his mastery in sanding, he has got amazing and fascinating results in giving life to unused pieces of wood.
In the range of wood sculptures done by the artist, he has used all his knowledge of human anatomy. He has given his works of art a hyper-realistic character that paintings or the sharpest of photographs will have. He incorporates his sense of perspective and composition into his work which highly contributes to continuing these optical illusions.
The warm colours of the wood and its grain give them a perceptible look that will be difficult to fake with paint. This is something that a master artist like Demitz can achieve. Have a look at these amazing larger-than-life sculptures.
