Wire Animal Sculptures That Look Like Scribbled Pencil Drawings By David Oliveira

Portuguese artist David Oliveira uses wire to “draw” in the air, creating amazing animal sculptures that can only be seen when you look from the correct angle. The 35-year-old artist’s work, especially when photographed, looks just like a scribbled pencil drawing. Oliveira’s background helps to explain his evolution as a sculptor.

“First I got a degree in Sculpture with a speciality in ceramics,” Oliveira says in an interview on LinkedIn. “After the course ended I started to explore wire, and this lead me to begin a masters degree in artistic anatomy with a special focus in drawing. I kept developing my technique, always experimenting with new ways to clarify my message. Meanwhile my message became broader, but with life as a common theme. I want to represent life in it´s ephemeral expression.”
