Artworks Carved by Hand Into Leather by Mark Evans.
The artist Mark Evans creates portraits of famous faces, all hand-etched into leather hides. He creates artwork using knives as his ‘paintbrushes’. These leather works of art are incredible and impressively detailed.
“I cut through the waxy, polished surface of the hide to reveal what’s really going on beneath the façade,” he says, believing his work relates to our primal, hunter/gatherer roots.
“I’m searching, aiming for something from below the surface. I guess I’m reaching for something magnificent. I’m trying to get under the skin.”
Evans’ leather etchings are enormously popular, selling to art collector around the world for up to £450,000 a piece.
