These incredible wooden sculptures were created by furniture maker and sculptor James McNabb. Using an abstract technique that has been described as "Sketching with a bandsaw" he creates architecturally inspired woodworks that mimic cityscapes.  The artist told Colossal:

I compare hyperrealistic painting to fine woodworking. Both are slow, tedious, detail oriented process that require great care and consideration through every stage of making. In contrast, I compare my style of rapid bandsaw mark making to the fast paced nature of spray can art. It’s my attempt at “urban woodworking”.
