| Reflections In Art + Culture: Hirotoshi Itoh and His Stone Sculptures



Hirotoshi Itoh and His Stone Sculptures

Japanese artist, Hirotoshi Itoh graduated from Tokyo National Fine Arts University in 1982 and later went into his family business as a stonemason. He spent several years working with metal before turning his attention to stones. He utilizes stones found in a river bank near his home, to create sculptures that juxtapose the original shape and hardness of the material with surprising humor and texture. Hirotoshi's work is so meticulous and well-crafted, one would assume that these were rendered or manipulated in Photoshop, but rest assured it is all created naturally with no digital post-production.
