I am currently working to expand my portfolio of life castings. I am looking for both Male and Female Models in Chicago and the surrounding area who have an interest in getting themselves life cast. I need to complete a few different types of casting, both clothed and nude. Please contact me if you are interested in modeling for any of these projects.
I also offer discounts on life castings to models. If you are interested in having a casting done of yourself, please contact me for prices!!
Castings can be done over clothing (swimsuit or underwear) so nudity is optional.
See examples on my site: www.life-casting.org
Email me with questions.
Chris Guarino has been working as a sculptor and life casting artist since 1998. His work has been shown in fine art galleries from San Francisco to Berlin, and featured in numerous publications and motion pictures. In 2009 he was named as 5280 Magazine's Best Local Artist. In 2011 his work was chosen to be included in the fantasy compilation book "Spectrum 18," and in 2013 he was given the honor of casting the face of World War II Veteran and Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient George Sakato for The International Life Cast Museum. His sculptures and life casts have been commissioned by large corporations, as well as private collectors, and adorn the homes of professional athletes and fellow artists alike. Chris currently works out of his studio in Chicago, IL.
