Vibrant colours and eclectic animal faces are two of the signature elements of the American sculptor AJ Fosik. His three-dimensional constructions, transforming everyday objects into something extraordinary by carefully assembling hundreds of individually cut pieces of wood and found materials. That this artist was meant to be a sculptor is obvious when seeing these American Folk Art and street art (just to name a few) influenced pieces. They are awesome and leave the viewer fascinated by the dynamic tension and impressed by the details they have to offer.
