Artist Uses Ordinary Drywall to Create Beautiful Wall Sculptures

Sometimes the mark of a true creative is their ability to make use of any medium to generate eye-catching artwork. Bernie Mitchell puts his unique brand of creativity to work as he constructs artistic murals out of nothing but drywall. The Canadian contractor currently lives and operates out of Ontario, drawing inspiration for his fantastic drywall creations from the beautiful natural surroundings of his country. Mitchell infuses a love of nature and animals into his work, transforming the walls of his clients into works of art.

For Mitchell, this line of work started off simply enough–he was first a professional drywall finisher before he began to experiment on the raised surfaces, making use of wheat and barley stalks and pieces of leather to fabricate intricate carvings. Today, Mitchell continues to offer his talents as a contractor but also has an unmatched affinity for creating speciality pieces. His preferred subjects are birds, and his subtle carvings bring a certain element of flair to an otherwise dull section of wall.

Check out the video, below, to see Mitchell sculpt an elegant scene of a wolf mother and pup.
