Who would have thought that chainsaw can be used as an artist’s tool? Igor Loskutow, a Germany-based Estonian artist creates impressive wood sculptures by using the most unusual carving tool – a chainsaw. Unlike chisels, knives, and gouges, chainsaws are more difficult to handle and operate (not to mention more dangerous too). But you’ll be surprised to see what chainsaw sculpture can do. Take a look at this beautiful dragon bench. It’s fairly hard to believe but this elaborate sculpture is actually carved with a chainsaw.
Igor is a member of the Husqvarna chainsaw sculpture team that promotes the brand while showcasing their cutting skills. Through their impressive wood sculptures, the team aims to advocate the use of chainsaw in the worlds of arts. Chainsaw is no longer just a mere tool for cutting trees for construction. But it can also be used for creative crafts.
The team has various creations to show off but Igor’s dragon bench is undoubtedly the best among the collection. You can see the artist’s incredible imagination and skills through his creation. With the sculpture’s realistic pair of wings, highly detailed facial features, and clear-cut tails, it’s certainly not just a bench. It’s a magnificent work of art.
Igor Loskutow uses a chainsaw to carve wooden sculptures such as this incredible dragon bench
Igor made this incredible dragon bench for a local butcher shop. But actually this is not his first dragon bench creation. In 2017, he created a red-headed dragon bench by utilizing the same technique of using chainsaw. Amazingly, the natural color of the red tinged wood gave the dragon’s head a fiery hue. It looks as if the dragon is about to breathe fire any moment. Igor’s masterpiece is quickly earning fame right now. But he has been a prominent sculptor way back 2015 when he won the Huskycup World Title.
