Dennis McNett carves animal figures into large wooden canvas — Fierce looking yet amazingly beautiful creatures

Dennis McNett, a Brooklyn-based artist, draws and carves animal figures into large pieces of wood. He then paints the wooden carvings with sharp, vivid colors, revealing the remarkable details and beauty of fierce looking animals such as wolves and snakes. McNett’s amazing talent and imagination had begun to take root in his childhood, nurtured by his blind grandfather. The old man planted a seed of confidence into the artist’s young mind, telling him over and over again that his drawings were good. Since then he’s been creating nothing but good artwork. Actually… very good and extraordinary!
