ITO Hirotoshi is a Japan-based stone sculpture artist, whose work has been known for its unique structures with a sense of humor. Hirotoshi uses stones found in a river bank near his home and creates sculptures that juxtapose the original shape and hardness of the material with surprising humor and texture. For instance, he carves marble with a deft hand, turning into fabric and garments; or he opens rocks and turning them into a wallet. He enjoys mixing the stone with different materials such as zippers, dentures, and coins. When you look at some of his work, you probably will laugh and surprise to say “How the hell is that even possible?” And we can assure Adobe Photoshop was not involved. [source]
Stone painting is a unique form of art where stones are painted with acrylic and transformed into beautiful subjects such as pets, insects, wildlife animals etc. These realistically painted stones not only looks great as desktop displays, it can be used as paperweights as well – a combination of both beauty and practicality – certainly the ideal gift for family and friends!
