  • How to Make a Woody Mammoth

    Woody Mammoth - Organic Garden Waste Sculpture (Woody as opposed to the extinct Woolly one) My latest work, the Woody Mammoth, is the first prototype of a series of outdoor organic sculptures totally created by recycling garden waste such as tree branches, leaves and bushes. The idea originated while carrying out my own tree reduction surgery on my back garden cypress trees. The enthusiasm of my neighbours following the five days progress of the work, combined to the final result, also exceeding my own expectations, are the reason why I here chose to present my Woody Mammoth. The Woody Mammoth embodies two important and very current issues: the responsibility of our actions in preventing the extinction of our planet’s living beings and the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling our waste materials. The construction of my Woody Mammoth attracted the attention of a wide and varied audience. I befriended with neighbors I had never met before. Elderly ladies and people of all ages walking their dogs, children playing with their bikes, new visitors viewing properties on sale, people going to or coming back from work, somehow the making of my Mammoth seemed to catch the interest of anyone walking or driving by. Interestingly I would also like to add that the Woody Mammoth was completed on the 17th of April 2015. Only a few days after, on 23rd of April, BBC News published an article titled ‘Mammoth genome sequence completed’ explaining how an international team of scientists had sequenced the complete genome of the Woolly Mammoth. I am proud to present my Woody Mammoth to celebrate this important milestone in scientific genome research. I intend studying more extinct animals, such as dinosaurs, gigantic insects or primates and continue my research into recycling garden waste and exploring this organic and recycled 3D sculpture concept for outdoor gardens.

    Amen - My sculptural motorbike in Sicily

    Amen - My sculptural motorbike in Sicily

    I could not avoid mentioning a first prize my motorbike "Amen" won in Sicily back in 1997. Amen is a combination of sculpture (black parts), real bones (the skeleton rests of a bull I found myself in Sicily. These real bones parts are left in their natural colour as a form of respect), and airbrush works on the tank. I was also very much into Airbrush art, we are talking of the pre-digital era or through the digital transition era, when I was determined to demonstrate that computers were of no help in human creativity. You might view the poster in more detail here: http://www.deniscarbonaro.co.uk/img/airbrush_competition.jpg
