The coral art of Joshua Abarbanel is not what a person might expect. It is a series of intricate wood carvings that is inspired by the landscape of oceans. The coral art forms reef-like layers that brings a little bit of the underwater world above sea level, which is something that the Little Mermaid could appreciate.
Born in Manchester and based in Los Angeles, California, Abarbanel's coral art is full of complexity. Although not as colorful as the real deal, people will appreciate the different tones of earthy browns achieved through stains. The current coral art collection is titled 'See Life: New Works by Joshua Abarbanel," and was on display at the Hinge Parallel Gallery in Culver City.
