Jaime Molina, a Denver-based artist, created this sculpture by hand carving the wood and painting it with acrylic paints. His art practice is varied--Jaime also makes large scale public sculpture and paints murals, which can be seen throughout Denver. Molina is inspired by the beautiful Colorado landscape, a setting that he calls home. His imagination is a huge part of his artistic process. Instead of searching for references of images online, he prefers to create the images based off his own imaginative interpretation.
