Aske and the art of plywood
Russian graphic artist Aske created a series of striking plywood artworks for a recent Moscow show
Aske starts with a sheet of plywood onto which he transposes his drawings
The individual pieces are then cut out
and painted in acrylics
before being mounted
This latest series of pieces was shown at the Faces&Laces Street Culture Show in Moscow earler this month.

These are stunning! It reminds me of the krypton factor.
I wood buy one... (and that's no ply).
Great craftsmanship, love to have one of these hanging on my wall!
Yes, they fit straight into one of the shops from Spitafields Market - next to a stenciled poster of Scarface.
Reminds me of fuzzy felt and I like fuzzy felt.
These are great
I feel they look more interesting without being painted
fuck me — these are amazing.
these are incredible, great detail
This is just wonderful work.
This is gorgeous and makes me want to break out the balsa wood and saw! Awesome
Slick footage, concept driven, touch of humour, entertainment value in USS
Beautiful stuff. I like the idea of using balsa as you can just use a knife to cut it.
Different woods would have different looks too.
I would love to see some of these on my walls.
Very cool idea, I love seeing new techniques like this!
