Fabio Viale

Fabio is a truly unbelievable craftsman. He works exclusively in white and black marble, but chooses to focus on mundane objects like paper airplanes rather than the traditional human or religious themes. In one series, he does carve a skull form and a Madonna form, however instead of making them smooth and glossy like most marble statues, he carves the surface and details to make it look as if it's been carved from styrofoam. He also made a totally functional speedboat out of marble to cruise the canals of Venice in. He really takes craftsmanship to a new level.
