Demonstrating Artist

Nikolay Motro

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday – Canopy D

Nikolay Motro was born and raised in Belarus, a former Soviet Republic, where he learned to carve wood from a neighbor. Using a variety of techniques, he carves faces and figures in both two and three dimensions as well as elaborately carved spoons, picture frames and other household objects that were used in Belarus villages. His work is both precise and graceful.
