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.
