Russian creative Goga Tandashvili adds an artistic touch to otherwise ordinary walls with his intricate bas-relief sculpture work. Using a combination of hand building and carving tools, the Russian sculptor brings nature-inspired scenes to life as they integrate seamlessly with their surroundings. Giant peacocks, bunches of blooms, and decorative flourishes rise from a flattened surface, resulting in large pieces that are part home decor and part stunning work of art.

In addition to his high relief sculptures, Tandashvili is also a prolific drawer and painter with an Impressionist-inspired style; his 2D work has a carefree fluidity that’s reminiscent of energetic brush lines and strokes you’d find in a sketchbook. This aesthetic makes its way into his bas-relief. Tandashvili draws on the walls with the same types of marks and then fills them in with the 3D material, giving his work a painterly feel.

Tandashvili shares his techniques with others and has hosted workshops that instruct participants on how to create their own bas-relief sculptures.
