Wow, that bench sure looks amazing! The details in every angle look so intricate, it seems impossible to believe that it was created using a chainsaw. The person who made this must be very fascinating to meet!
Well the genius behind this now viral bench is Igor Loskutow. He is a wood carving instructor currently based in Bad Dürrheim, Southern Germany. According to his website, chainsaw carving is a new type of art and is different from the traditional way. Chainsaw carvers use huge, heavy and coarse chainsaw to create their masterpieces, whether it be a small or large sculpture.
The dragon bench is not the first one to give him fame, however. Loskutow has had numerous awards since 2006, with the latest being a first place finish in the 2009 Fasna Carving Festival in the Netherlands.
Loskutow considers the courses he provide not only as a way to develop carving skills, but also as a great gift to anyone who is curious to try out woodcarving.
The creator of the Dragon Bench
Loskutow, together with four other German artists represent Husqvarna – a famous chainsaw manufacturer in Germany, during events. Their team creates sculptures on-the-spot during these events, and according to Luskotow, they truly become the center of attention.
