Fantasy Horror

Aves Artist

Artist: Jesica Perez Bianciotto

I moved to this country in 2006. Not speaking the language I had no choice but work in cleaning jobs and I did this for 10 years. By 2016 I had a great job in a high end Hotel, with a good salary, benefits and all that jazz. But I was miserable. So I decided to quit, get a part time job and do farmer markets during the weekends ( and I bummed!).  After 2 years of doing small shows here and there I finally get to quit my part time and do this for a living,  very scary some times but it worth it. I wouldn’t change it for anything. I get the chance to do what i love, travel and meet great people around the country. What else can i ask for?

Fantasy Horror

About The Artist

Company: Silver Root Studio
Jesica began formal fine arts training in Argentina at Emilio Caraffa Art School from 1999-2001 when she was only 16. She enjoyed bringing complex and dynamic characters to life through pen, watercolor, and sculpture.     After graduating from Emilio Caraffa, she studied at UNC Universidad Nacional de Cordoba from 2002-2004. These years were full of personal and professional expansion as she explored offbeat paths of beingness and expression.     Today, Jesica lives and creates from her home in  OKC, Oklahoma. She enjoys cultivating relationships with captivating friends — some that she meets and some that she makes

The Gardens of Myth

Gardens of Myth

Artist: Kendall R. Hart

It was the beauty and fantasy inherit in a botanical garden that first inspired my vision for Gardens of Myth. I have worked for years installing life size dinosaur shows in such venues and my own love of mythological creatures suggested the idea. Botanical gardens so easily transport us into a world too lovely to believe, really, a fantasy realm. The marriage of flora and fantastic fauna was just as natural. Picturing the creatures from the campfire stories of the world’s peoples in these environments spurred me into designing Gardens of Myth. I wanted to bring those creatures into our world.

About Gardens of Myth

Gardens of Myth is a collection of life size, super realistic sculptures depicting the creatures of myth from around the world. These creatures are familiar today in popular culture through great works of literature and modern movies such as The Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter series.

Each sculpture is handmade and painted by the artist Kendall R. Hart and his team.  They range in size from the tiny fairies to the dinosaur-sized dragon. These works of art are sturdy enough for prolonged outdoor display and are sure to capture the imagination of all who view them!

About The Artist

“Professional sculptor, painter, illustrator, graphic and web designer, Kendall R. Hart’s artistic mindscape was shaped after seeing Frazetta’s Death Dealer. Inspired by fantasy and surrealism, but also by the exaggerated realism of Norman Rockwell, his greatest wish is to share his visions with the world both in 2D and 3D. Having obtained a BFA and studied graphic design, with many years of corporate art direction and freelance experience, he has cultivated a wide range of skills with an ability to combine both the traditional and contemporary. His art and design can be found in graphic novels, books, websites, toy and horror film concept art, America’s major haunt attractions, natural history museums, and private collections.

This award-winning artist specializes in the sculpture of life-size creatures. Whether it is a commission from a pop culture enthusiast or a prehistoric beast or one of the many oddities meandering in his mind, Mr. Hart delights in filling our world with carefully designed and detailed sculptures. He has created the world’s first life-size Kobold, which is the beginning of his personal collection of life-size creatures for traveling exhibition. When sculpting, he has made innovation of technique and use of material his study. And from live sculpting demonstrations to talking to a classroom full of students, he has made sharing his passion with others his practice.

Kendall R. Hart grew up in Illinois in the 1980s. His journey to monster maker began as a child in the 1980s, wanting to recreate his favorite characters,  experimentingwith art to the point of playing Frankenstein with dinosaur figures to make his own toys. Cutting the plates off a Stegosaurus, gluing them on the back of a T-rex, hidingthe damage from mom, and creating his own custom Godzilla toy! The ability to bring whatever he wanted into our world was the magic art held for him. And the spell endures. After cave-painting in the womb, he was born in Alton, IL and raised in Carlinville, IL and currently resides with his clan south of St Louis in the Northern Ozarks with residences on both sides of the Great River. Make art, buy art, read books, and love easily!

Custom Action Figures

actionfigure5Artist: Adam Crohn
Company: AC Custom Figures

I make 6″ super articulated custom action figures. Mostly superhero and sci-fi related characters. I usually start with a generic base, grind it down, and sculpt it back up with Aves Apoxie Sculpt. Then paint the figure.

Products Used: I mostly use Aves 2 part Apoxie Sculpt. I prefer the white as I find it’s easier to work with and gives you a longer work time.

The Wolf ‘London’

final-London-Better-pic

Artist: Debra Mager
Company: Cinderella Mosaics

final-London-Before-picLondon, named after Jack London, who wrote Call Of The Wild, was a fantastic challenge for me. I’d never done anything quite so “serious” on such a deeply textured substrate, (I used Apoxie Sculpt in black to fill in the nooks and crannies). I collaborated with the client every step of the way. When I handed London to her (we met in Tennessee so I did not have to ship him) she teared up; she was so moved. What a reward that was for me! She has since given it to her son, who collects wolves, for his birthday. What a great gift giver she is!

20170727_CinderellaKrazyKatThis is called “Krazy Kat”. All the materials are imbedded in black AS. I love this method. I can decorate with all of my goofy doodads and don’t have to grout! He just sold.

The Clown Birds

IMG_8283-1

Processed with MOLDIV

Recently I was invited to create some art for the Grand Opening of Quirks Art Gallery in Williamsburg, Virginia with their opening theme of a Circus/Sideshow.
I had just completed Michael deMeng’s online workshop – The Twisted Toyshop. The workshop inspired me to give a twist to some bird assemblages I make and with that I came up with “The Clown Birds”. The bird assemblages are all wood. The little hats and clown masks, and circus outfits are all made with Aves Apoxie Sculpt. I also use Aves Apoxie Sculpt for securing all the pieces, which never fails me, I have complete assurance that everything will remain intact. The Fortune Teller was constructed using Aves Apoxie Sculpt as well. I am a complete addict when it comes to your Apoxie Sculpt. When I first discovered it, through Sandra Evertson’s Relics and Artifacts Tribe on Facebook, it totally took my art to a new level. It is the one staple in my studio, I will never be without. I usually order online through Amazon, but I was sent here today because I am taking another one of Michael deMeng’s classes, Strange Tales-Magic and Miracles and he told us about going straight to your sight and using his name for 10% off. That’s when I saw that I could up load some photos and have the opportunity to Thank you for such a great product! Artist ~ Kim Collister
