The Reincarnation of Driftwood by Tamas Kanya

My name is Tamas Kanya, I’m living in Budapest nearby Római-beach. Six years ago I got the inspiration to create these driftwood sculptures out of pieces of wood that washed ashore.

What normally people don’t even notice and just walk by, became the objects of fascination. I have always enjoyed creating “things” out of random stuff that I would find. All my creations and photos are done on the spot where I source the materials. As soon as I have some free time, I find myself creating something new. It’s a joy to be able to go down to the river and bring to life what everyone else would just consider trash.

Over the years, I have done many many of these sculptures- each one with a unique “storyline” of its own, that started long before the tree has fallen…here are some of my favorites!
