Edgar Askelovic considers himself a controversial hyperrealistic interpretation sculptor and his main expertise is working with clay, plasticine, silicone, fibreglass, resins, chrome, bronze, metals and stone.
He carries out most of his work under the pseudonym ASPENCROW. known for his life-sized sculptures, but his practice is deeply rooted in his initial interest in painting realism.
His artwork emerges as a translation of painterly practices into sculptural forms with an ability to delve deeply into 3- dimensional objects. In the artist’s own words “I understood that I could display anything in painting anytime – from abstraction to realism”. His subject matters are often well-known public figures and he likens this process to sculpting their portrait.
