Artist of the moment……..Fraser Smith

 

Fraser Smith makes incredible clothing items including bomber jackets, hats,and professional sports jerseys out of wood! All of the pictures in the gallery are all carvings. Each work begins with one piece of basswood. The work is then carved and Smith uses water based pigments to achieve the look of heavily worn objects.

Smith attended college at an Ivy league school, but I couldn’t find out which one.

Fraser Smith was born in 1958.

Price range information: Sorry none available.
