Chainsaw Art

about Gabi Rizea

Even though he only began to carve wood in 2014, Gabi Rizea’s knowledge and skill level has rapidly grown. His latest piece Apa — which means water in Romanian — transforms a rotting ash stump into a pail with water spilling out. Located in a children’s park in Craiova, Romania, the work was especially challenging due to the insects eating away at the rotted stump.

Gabi began by carving a few stumps with his chainsaw, in his yard, in Romania, and then continued to hone his craft as neighbors began to request his artwork. He has no idea how did he get the idea for his wood Apa: “In my mind sometimes I have some images,” he tells My Modern Met. “When I work, it’s me, the log, and God.”
