Bavaria, Germany-born artist Jürgen Lingl-Rebetez is an artist that creates majestic animal sculptures by carefully applying a chainsaw to wood. The 44-year-old spent his early childhood dabbling in art, he drew and painted everything he could set his eyes on which included animals, buildings, people, buildings and landscapes. At the age of 20, after graduating from Josef-Effner Grammar School, he exhibited for the first time in a gallery in Dachau. After his mandatory civil service in Schönbrunn, Lingl-Rebetez became a wood sculptor apprentice to Master Hans-Joachim Seitfudem. In 1996, Jürgen Lingl-Rebetez moved to Switzerland and worked as an independent artist. It was then that he began creating works with a chainsaw. His sculptures take on the appearance of drawings, however, they’re made with a chainsaw in a three dimensional space.
