Chicken Metal Mesh Turned Into Large Sculptures by Ivan Lovatt

Ivan Lovatt is a sculptor who has been creating sculpture for over 14 years for private collections, corporations and public exhibition.

He initially started with driftwood and reclaimed timber rendered into birds and wildlife. He is constantly experimenting with various mediums and exploring new ways for creating unique artwork. He now uses galvanized chicken wire to create large animal sculptures. 

He creates these sculptures using different gauges of wire that are twisted, layered, and shaped into extraordinary masterpieces. His sculptures can range in size anywhere from 30 cm to 3 metres in height.

Besides animal sculptures, Ivan has been commissioned to create a series of portraits of famous people including Albert Einstein, John Lennon, and Sir Edmund Hillary. He has won numerous awards and has also created series of portraits for Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museums in the USA, London and Australia.
