Artist Makes Sculptures With Wire And Tulle That Look Like Pencil Sketches

David Oliveria also known as "The Lisbon Wire Man" is a sculpture artist who creates amazing sculpture using metal wire and tulle. His work is so delicate that the sculptures look like hand drawn ink sketches, you would think they are two dimensional.

He uses variety of wires from galvanized to silver, to iron. The gauge of the wire is carefully selected to represent the density of the lines in his subject. He uses wire, and cuts it and twists it in ways to create life-size animals, birds and human figures. Once the form is ready it's painted black for durability and the sculptures are then "colored" with tulle. You can follow him and learn about his new work by following him on Instagram.
