You are feasting your eyes on leather hides, ladies and gentlemen. “Leather-etch” artist Mark Evans was featured previously back in April 2010. Evans first caught our attention with his unique art pieces where he literally scratches, etches, scrapes, and marks large sheets of leather in order to create detailed works of art using nothing more than a select collection of sharp knives.
“What’s done cannot be undone.”
In Evans’ work, there is absolutely no room for error. With the trust of his eyes and hands, every mark that he makes with the blade of his knife is carefully placed due to the nature of his process and the medium.
