Turning Pencils Into Miniature Pop-Culture Sculptures

I live in the city of Ufa in Russia. I was born in a family of artists and continue the family tradition. I made my first graphite sculptures just earlier this year. I carved well-known characters: Batman and Darth Vader.

I also make micro copies of famous paintings on pumpkin seeds, sunflower and rice. But most of all I like to work with pencils. For me it’s like meditation and a challenge: to make a micro sculpture and not break it! It is indeed very fragile and tiny and that excites me the most. I use a craft knife and a magnifying glass to carve my sculptures.

Nowadays there are many artisans who carve pencils. But for me it is still a great art, and I try to bring each of my sculpture to perfection.
