Book Sculptures by Mike Stilkey

I’ve found these amazing “book sculptures” in Mike Stilkey’s website and I just got to share. Great work of art pieces. One can just marvel at how creative a person can be.

Here’s Mike Stilkey’s bio direct from his website:

Los Angeles native Mike Stilkey has always been attracted to painting and drawing not only on vintage paper, record covers and book pages, but on the books themselves. Using a mix of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer, Stilkey depicts a melancholic and at times a whimsical cast of characters inhabiting ambiguous spaces and narratives of fantasy and fairy tales. A lingering sense of loss and longing hints at emotional depth and draws the viewer into their introspective thrall with a mixture of capricious poetry, wit, and mystery. His work is reminiscent of Weimar-era German expressionism and his style has been described by some as capturing features of artists ranging from Edward Gorey to Egon Schiele.

  1. Thanks for stopping by our website: http://www.clubcreativestudio.wordpress.com where you may have read my blog about the art that I discovered on Mike Stilkey’s website. I did ask and was given permission via e-mail from him to write and share his art work photos. I am happy that you too find his work interesting and have featured his art. I hope that it encourages others to “read between the lines” of their books in an artful way as well.

    • Stilkey’s artworks are indeed beautiful. I was so amazed at how creative and impressive they are. Both the artist and his art is indeed worth sharing to everyone. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
