Russian graphic artist Aske created a series of striking plywood artworks for a recent Moscow show

Aske starts with a sheet of plywood onto which he transposes his drawings

The individual pieces are then cut out


and painted in acrylics

before being mounted

This latest series of pieces was shown at the Faces&Laces Street Culture Show in Moscow earler this month.

These are stunning! It reminds me of the krypton factor.

Yes, they fit straight into one of the shops from Spitafields Market - next to a stenciled poster of Scarface.

Reminds me of fuzzy felt and I like fuzzy felt.

Slick footage, concept driven, touch of humour, entertainment value in USS

Beautiful stuff. I like the idea of using balsa as you can just use a knife to cut it.
Different woods would have different looks too.
Beautiful ideas.
