“Mark Newman, a true artist; a man who can go from the ol’ traditional sculpture school to the grotesque and fantastic style in just a blink of an eye… just look how his works look like they were alive!…a master, an imspiration…”
Kind a creepy and scary sculptures by outstanding artist Mark Newman. He really knows how to use his imagination. Some of them are very creative and cool and i would like to visit one of his galleries. There is some of the famous movie characters in his archive of sculptures. I think that you gonna love them, so last word: “Enjoy!”.
