Mack Viralata

To continue the posts about portraits, I found this awesome artist, Mack Viralata, from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. I love all of his sketches and especially his wooden characters. His use of these uniquely crafted pieces of wood other found objects and illustrated faces are cute, skillful, and natural.

His design style on the streets reminds me of Barry McGee. I've been recently obsessed with beautifully crafted objects out of single pieces of wood, so when I saw Viralata's sculptures, I fell in love with all these weirdly cut shapes mixed with faces and accessories.
