Jim F. Faure, known as Jim Skull, is the creator of these amazing sculptures. If the photos are impressive, imagine seeing them in person. The human skull is full of symbolism. The most common association that comes to mind when we see a skull, is death. But when I look at Jim’s sculptures, I see the skull as the home that contains and protects our thoughts and ideas, which live in the brain.
Born in 1973, lives and works in Treviso. After linguistic maturity, he graduated from the School of Applied Arts of Castello Sforzesco in Milan, with a specialization in the art of weaving (1995). After a long experience in the field of restoration (Milan-Venice from 1993 to 1997), the passion for art and textiles led her to pursue research, from everyday life, the transitory and ephemeral.
She attended a three-year course at the ‘Scuola triennale d’Arte Applicata’ (School of Visual Arts) based at the Castello Sforzesco in Milan and obtained a qualification in weaving on haute lisse loom (a vertical frame loom used to weave tapestries and rugs).
