Looking for a custom piece of art? You may want to invest in stunning one of a kind original artwork instead of the cheap mass-produced fake pieces from big chain stores. Whether you are already familiar with purchasing original artwork or not, not everybody knows that it’s always possible to commission a custom artwork directly from an artist. It’s a great option if you are looking for something unique and special.
This set was custom made for a specific location and needs. The client wanted to display something beautiful on a blank, tall wall that leads to a loft alongside their floating stairs and also to benefit for sound dampening, to meet both aesthetical and acoustical needs.
Each single piece of wood is cut, shaped, detailed, carved, sanded and assembled by hand with passion, love and care. The assemblage is almost done and next step is a painting and fine finishing. Turquoise was chosen as colour preference.
The first layer is always a wood protection. Acrylic painting is a next step. And then, hand sanding is applied to enhance wood grains and knots in order to show the real beauty of wood and emphasize the structure of shape formations. Last layer is fine finishing to protect the sculpture itself.
One of my favourite part to get pictures from a happy and completely satisfied clients. Great to see the pieces in their new home.

For many of us, nature is an endless source of rejuvenation. A place of peace we can escape to when the reality of the modern world get to be too overwhelming. A place that recharges us, alights our senses, ignites our imagination and gives us the energy to dive back in. Why wouldn’t you try and emulate some of that majesty and wonder in your own home? In the latest projects I tried to bring some of the power and beauty of nature into the house:
The ability to bring nature into your home has been an ambition that humans have strived for over the centuries. We love the natural and organic appeal of elements that makes us feel calm, at peace and above all welcomed into a space.
From the bark of a tree to the soft feel of grass underfoot to the sturdiness of a rock wall, nature is full of textures, and those textures can be explored in your home. Give your senses something to grab a hold to so you can revisit nature’s textures in your home anytime you’d like.
The more we get involved with technology, the more people want to surround themselves with the textures, colors, and patterns of nature.
Wood wall art will help you feel closer to nature and add an organic touch. Admit it, exotic things excite and attract us!
