"Chiodo Art designs and fabricates realistic figures, elements, and environments for a variety of industries. Chiodo Art was established in 1997 with the demand for dynamic design and fine sculpted elements in commercial spaces, parks and museums. Located in the heart of Oakland, CA, Chiodo Art provides all aspects of design, production and installation. In our 18,000 sq ft building, we employ 25 local artists and craftspeople that make our client's designs a reality.
Chiodo Art is renowned for its ability to replicate realism. Lead sculptor Mario Chiodo has won numerous commissions and awards because of his ability to sculpt appealing, recognizable and impassioned artwork. Today, Mario directs a diverse team of artists who are experts in realistic artwork, murals, painting, foliage, scenery and scientifically-accurate modeling."
