Amazing art

Leather sculpture?

Can there be such a thing?

Indeed there is and I was in awe at the talent of the artist. The folds of the garments and the intricate details on the dozen or so pieces (many of them life size) is astounding.

When I walked out of the gallery, I wanted to run and grab all the people passing by and urge them to visit.

Artist LIU MIAO CHAN's all leather sculpture reflects his expertise in creating life-like figures to scale which express depths of emotions and captures the color and movement of the soul.

"Leather is soft, alive, like skin. It is warm and allows for movement. It gives life to the work," explains Chan. And fortunately for us, Chan’s genius gives unique, artistic life to the leather, to feed the world’s soul. Chan does all of his own leather sculpting, which takes an inordinate amount of time.
