The majority of sculptures are handcrafted from a polymer resin specially designed for sculptures and finished with exterior UV metallic paint. Some of them, like the large mermaids are sold as carvings only. The whole collection has in common a detailed process completely handmade by Maykel from the sketch to the signature and final coat. Recent sculptures have a modern bubbles painting technique before the final touches, the signature and the shiny clear coat for protection and elegance. These are recommended for inside and outside as well. Strong enough for any outside weather but like most art pieces in this world doesn't have a lifetime warranty, but will need to be take care of and loved.
Connecting with the artist vision
Have you ever seen a piece of art and wonder what was in the artist mind while creating it? What am I really seeing here?
This is the artist point of view for "Ocean Calling" collection:
Definitely not a simple addition of shapes, materials and paints, but an intentional combination of nature, texture, color and a message for our generation and the ones to come. Maykel sketches a new sculpture for days until he captures what it feels as a real moment in life, somewhere in the vast ocean, an image that brings peace and happiness to him, so after finished can offer the same to everyone that stand in front of it. It's not only a time portion of the artist life or the summary of his work and learning but the mystery, beauty and powerful majesty of the world we are privileged to life on. Certainly, a world we should take care.
