After graduating from the Tokyo National Fine Arts University in 1982 Hirotoshi Itoh dove right into his family business as a stonemason, after initially working with metal for a few years he decided to turn all of his attention to stones. Utilizing stones found in a river bank near his home, Itoh creates sculptures that juxtapose the original shape and hardness of the material with surprising humor and texture. Slersk Love this artist, I follow his works on Deviant Art. rebeccazg cool. very nice – love the ones with the zips most, I think. raneroni2 I’ve never seen a piece of art like this! It’s fresh and new! It’s nice to run across an artist who doesn’t do what everyone else is doing. Really enjoyed this! http://www.smartnetzone.com/ Abhilash This is really awsome..someting really different..
