London-based artist Martin Tomsky’s woodwork collection is filled with many elaborate illustrations which he has transformed into wooden sculptures. To create each amazing piece, he layers together laser cut plywood into tactile pieces filled with various textures and shades of brown.
The thick, wooden sculptures are a fascinating display of the artist’s illustration capabilities in a unique form. Intricately twisted curves and swirls form fantastic tales of animals fighting in the forest, elaborate sea serpents, and skeletons hiding in the closet. Energy and motion radiate from each whirling curl and undulation.
Tomsky is passionate about creating interesting visual narratives through his art. He explains, “My personal work and illustrations for children are primarily about creating new worlds, unique characters to inhabit those worlds and to depict stories which bring them to life.”
