Gus Modeste for the Wild and Wondrous Side of Wacky Wednesday is certainly an artist to behold.
I meet a lot of people in life and travels, some that are quite clearly characters in their own right, some full of hot air with egos just as full, and some, just super modest. Gus Modeste was just such a person and I’m not sure if his last name is a play on words, but I’m willing to run with it. We met on Instagram and I was intrigued ever since.
I didn’t now this, but after a little homework I learned that he is a very well known artist, not only for his detailed carving, but equally so in his talent and lust for painting. His work is easily recognizable with his attention to every little detail, clean lines and ever stunning expressions in all of his carvings. Whether traditional or contemporary, he was just as professional and passionate as a First Nations Master artist
