Jago Jacopo Cardillo is a self-taught sculptor from Italy, who uses stone and marble to create super realistic sculptures. His ability to create every small detail on the bodies he is forming is unbelievable and he makes his creations look more plastic, transforming them into living things. His works are technical exercises and experiments on the perception of matter. He plays on mass and tactile sensation, on the physical properties of the material he uses, showing it soft or elastic, light or heavy, liquid and solid. His work is highly detailed and he dreams of one day becoming the contemporary Michelangelo.
