Artist Turns Drywall Into Art with Nothing But Joint Compound

Bernie is based in Ontario, Canada and all of his creations are custom and hand-made pieces of legitimate art.
Bernie uses joint compound to create the 3D images.

Bernie started experimenting with drywall in the early 1990’s. He wanted to play with raised surfaces and how the light interacted with them.

He apparently studied pretty well. The way the light works with the shore line in this sculpture is really spectacular.

After he was comfortable with utilizing the light with raised surfaces, he started using barley and wheat stalks to make impressions in the walls.

Using the joint compound allows him to layer on top of the drywall and create the 3D images.

I love this wilderness depiction. The way he places each sculpture to fit perfectly under the light really adds a lot to the piece.

A steady hand and an active imagination seem to be the only limits to what this man can create.

A common theme for the art throughout the whole room can really tie everything together.

If you love the outdoors, these pieces of drywall sculpture art are a great way to bring some of the outdoors straight into your home.
