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?

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.

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.

Meet the Maker

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!

Building a Rock

Bonsai Tree

by Cheryl Sykora

I have a really short needled, mother nature developed ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa, bonsai that is best shown as a semi-cascade. If everybody remembers the earlier article on ponderosa pine, short needle ponderosas grow naturally in areas of the Rockies. The ponderosa, when tipped sideways to achieve the semi-cascade, exposed a long thinner section which was more likely barked root rather than trunk. This “stalk-like” area was distracting to the overall appearance of the tree.

I'm very pleased with how the LFL turned out. The look is a close approximation of the actual Trinidad Memorial lighthouse. Applying stucco would have been messy, and harder to work with. The Apoxie was perfect!   Below are photos pre and post paint. 92 lbs of Apoxie used (yellow purchased from you, and 16 lbs...

What Types of Tools to Use

What-type-of-Tools-to-use
I mentioned something about Tools... I talked about various kinds of tools. Pictured; are the silicone rubber tipped tools that I think everyone should have when working with Aves®. They have different nibs on the ends of various shapes. I prefer to use the conical tip, or the bladed tip for scribing wrinkles in skin....
