Amazing Graphite Sculptures by Agelio Batle
San Francisco-based artist Agelio Batle creates amazingly detailed objects out of graphite.
“Batle’s reverence for organic forms was inspired by countless hours spent in the grandeur and wisdom of nature, intimately observing and studying. Further nurtured into being through Batle’s formal studies in biology and art, this vision thrived and grew.
Each graphite objects was meticulously created through a unique process he invented. Carbonaceous graphite (mineral remains of prehistoric plant life) was combined with smudge-resistant compounds under intense pressure. The mass then fused into expression of nature’s enduring simplicity you see before you. All their surfaces can draw and the graphite will resist smudging onto your hands. Batle envisions these objects as sculptures, as much as they are implements for inspiring your own vision.”Art Posted on July 22, 2014
