Chainsaw Artists Carves Larger-Than-Life-Size Native American Portrait out of Tree Trunk

A well-rounded artist from the Ukraine knows how to paint and sculpt in the traditional manner—but after watching chainsaw virtuosos transforming wood on TV, Vlad Yaremenko found his new niche.When the 48-year-old artist from Novograd-Volynsky, Ukraine, first picked up a chainsaw 15 years ago, and began turning wood into wildlife, there was no looking back.“I decided to try it, and it was right,” Vlad told The Epoch Times, speaking Russian. “I realized it was mine.”Although he has a passion for portraying animals, such as bears, wolves, and lions, he’s also a skilled portrait artist.In one of his more recent works, Vlad started sketching out an aged face of a Native American man, accompanied by a wolf motif, and set out to create a larger-than-life-size scaled sculptural representation from a large hunk of wood.
