Xia Xiaowan

The work of this Chinese artist are some of the most incredible I've ever seen. His unique technique of using special pencils on over a dozen sheets of tinted glass panels layered together creates a very bizarre sculptural image. Coincidentally I've thought about trying this for several years except with oil paints. It's very interesting to see that someone else has tried this out and the amazing results that it creates. And I'm more excited than ever to try this technique out myself. To view more of his works visit his gallery pages here and here.

And here is a view of these works on display where you can get a better idea how they look from the side, amazing. They look like aquariums with things floating inside. Image taken from here.
