Wolfgang Stiller's Matchstick Men series is made up of gigantic wooden matches that are burned on one side. The artist has carved extremely intricate human heads on the on burnt sides of it with scaled matchboxes.

The project is very creative and has an original concept. Although there has been a lot of colossally magnified object exhibitions within the art field lately, a matchstick interpretation is a very inventive take.

It would be a fun turnover if memorial sculptures of important people were made of creative surfaces such as this one. It would certainly make the art forms more conceptually relevant and interesting to look at.

Working with both solid and burnt wood surfaces, Wolfgang Stiller has created an unusual art form that will surely make a lot of noise upon its exhibition. Stats for Colossal Matchstick Sculptures Trending: Older & Warm
