Entitled 'Pater', this surrealist paper sculpture is the latest work from Joe Fenton. The artist is known for his captivating illustrations and this piece takes the drawings to a more elevated and sculptural level.

This surrealist paper sculpture is created from a clay mold that is intricately crafted to resemble ancient architecture from various parts of the globe. In addition to baroque and oriental references, Joe Fenton's latest project boasts three surrealist illustrations that are arranged in a linear triptych format.

This idea is inspired by religious Renaissance art and is a process that took nearly 3 months to complete. The art piece is a marriage of various modern and traditional references and is incredibly beautiful in addition to its impeccable craftsmanship.
