Artist Spends 14 Months Creating A Ghost Ship Statue That Looks Like It’s Straight From A Horror Movie
Jason Stieva is a Whitby, ON based tattoo and assemblage artist, whose works feature various gothic style skull and bone motives. Jason says his art was inspired by architecture, art galleries, churches, graveyards, and catacombs he had seen when traveling in Europe for the first time in 1997. The artist has been working on his sculptures for more than 20 years.
Jason says he collects the pieces for his works in various antique stores, garage sales, auctions, flea markets and even by the roadside. One of the most impressive statues he has made is a pirate ship called “Leviathan”. The amazing piece of art is pretty big, measuring 8 ft (2.43 m) tall, 7.5 ft (2.28 m) long and 2.5 ft (0.76 m) wide. It took the artist about 14 months to complete. The amount of detail is incredible and Jason says it has been very stressful transporting the sculpture to the collector who bought it.
We think the “Leviathan” looks absolutely incredible, check out the amazing statue in the gallery below!
