Eirik Arnesen

From Eirik Arnesen.com - Eirik Arnesen (b. 1990), from Oslo, received his education in the figurative arts at The Florence Academy of Art in Florence Italy, where he studied sculpture under Robert Bodem.

King of the Rusted Crown

 His focus is on the human body and the goal is to produce carefully thought out works with solid construction and organic naturalism in order to create a convincing image of the human body in accordance with the realist tradition. 

Under the Weeping Moon

"At the moment, I strive to include several priorities in my work, first and foremost accurate observation of the subject in pursuit of work that contain some of the gravity and physicality found in the natural world."

The Dereliction of Self

 I am enamored with Arnesen's work. Through his youtube videos I have discovered a new ambition for the traditional sculptural style and absolutely lost count of the things I've learnt. Arnesen also has a patreon page for those of you over there where patrons are able to receive tutorage and advice.

Emil Melmoth

Emil Melmoth (pic stolen from the net)

If you haven't caught a glimpse of Emil Melmoth drifting through the the data waves you probably don't deserve the internet. I'm not going to rant on about how much I dig his stuff, I'm not sure I could express that enough even if I tried, so here's a few pic's I knicked from "Curiator". You have a gander at those and please excuse me, I'm off to look at more...

Emil Melmoth "study of death"

Emil Melmoth "expiatorius"

Emil Melmoth "holy child of the plague"

Emil Melmoth "arcane-XIII"

I had the great pleasure of viewing arcane XIII last year at the BeinArt gallery here in Melbourne and I can honestly say, these are even better in the flesh. Melmoth's work in my opinion is the bees knees. More from Melmoth here.
