Etched Animal Skins - Artworks by Mark Evans (6 pics)

What a clever and practical way to create art. Mark Evans uses anything sharp from a flint to a broken glass(until he discovered knives-lol), to cut and etch his way into animal skins, to produce some of the most awesome artworks I've seen in a long time.

Art doesn't get much more primal than etching animal skins with a big knife. - from his website

"I don't do brushes, I can't paint...I just play with knives" - Mark Evans, 2010
