    Chipika Simanwe

    Country: Zambia

    Style: Impressionist, Realism

    Medium: Oil, mixed Media on Canvas

    Fun Fact:  Chipika ‘s work has developed steadily over the years allowing a passage of an initiate into the fold of mainstream art. His earlier experiments have paid off with further exploration in his new body of work he refers ‘Red Handed’ , its clear that he has been researching to take his style further than the previous collections, this time has come more with lively colourful images in two fold, semi realistic expressions and abstract manifestations

    Unusual Sculptures of People and Skeletons Chiseled from Wood by Yoshitoshi Kanemaki

    Japanese sculptor Yoshitoshi Kanemaki chisels these life-sized figurative sculptures out of giant pieces of camphor wood, a kind of evergreen. The strange pieces frequently involve two or more characters merged into a single form, which could been interpreted as commentary on mortality, or multiple personalities/perspectives.
