Italian specialist Bruno Walpoth makes surprisingly lifelike sculptures of people with wood. The rings and knots in each wood that the specialist works with contributes an innovative factor to the finished determine. All at once, they simulate the distinctive blemishes of people and give a figurative soul to the trees from which it came.
Having evolved with a family tree of grandfathers and an uncle who were distinguished woodcarvers, Walpoth has desperately selected to follows in their exercise, integrating his own modern concepts to the art. Motivated by all types of art that lie beyond wood chiselling and sculptures, the specialist techniques strong pieces of wood with a innovative perspective, changing them into delicately specific numbers in the similarity of men and ladies.
Walpoth's figurative sculptures at the same time enjoy the body system and maintain the natural noticeable information of the medium. The specialist uses semi-translucent colour to cover his sculptures to make sure that the wood grain are noticeable. Despite the recognizable wood grain, there is a sense of life and humankind in the numbers which often seem quite pensive and strong in thought.
