Bas-Relief is a way of sculpting figures that are somewhat raised from a flat surface, which is a technique as old as humankind’s very first artistic endeavors. On the walls of all kinds of buildings and temples from ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece, those Bas-Relief sculptures could be found, and now it’s making a comeback as well.
Goga Tandashvili, a Russian artist who is a master of the art brings scenes inspired by the natural world, such as long-tailed birds, flowers and luxurious fronds of fern. Your home décor becomes a beautiful piece of impressionist art since the scenes blend in perfectly with their atmosphere. Also, since Goga is a painter, paintings come across in his sculptures, whereas he draws on the wall and then adds material on top of the lines to create the 3D effect. This brings interiors to life with brilliant textures and contours.
How does he do it? “I use a different tool depending on the artistic problem: knives, cutters, chisels, palette knives,” he told Bored Panda. “The choice of the material is also determined by the task, for the interior I work with gypsum mixtures, this is the old material that has proved itself for centuries. If there is a need to do work from bronze, granite, marble, steel and so on, then I could also do that.”
“I am primarily interested in the artistic image, and the material is secondary, although it adds character to the work. I also paint, this is my first love. I came to sculpture from painting and I’m very happy to be able to translate it into bas-reliefs.”
