Sculpture from a tusk of a mammoth and a semiprecious stone.
Denis Isakov was born 1977 in Kyiv. As a child, he loved painting and sculpture. He completed the artistic school, where he finally decided on the art by choosing sculpture.
Since 1994 he has dedicated himself to bone carving. Denis Isakov's artworks landed in private collections in USA, Germany, France, Russia, Czech Republic. In particular, some artworks can be found in collections of Donald Trump, Celine Dion, famous political figures.
In his mini sculptures, Denis Isakov gives preference to realism, by abandoning generalized shapes and stylizations, combining different materials, especially, semiprecious stones and valuable wood with bone. In his sculptures, he attaches a great importance to working over details. This is a very laborious process taking a lot of time. With each new artwork, the master improves his ability to animate dead materials and demonstrates that bone carving is not a prerogative of Japanese craftsmen.
