Artist CW Roelle has created this series of intricate drawings made entirely from wire. The artist, who hails from Providence, Rhode Island, is able to create intricately designed drawings with a lot of attention paid to little details, a quality that not all artists are able to acquire.

The images in his latest collection features a man mowing his lawn, a musician carrying his guitar, a bird in a traditional bird cage and a couple embracing between two trees. The discovery of using wire to make his artworks came when the artist was taking a life drawing class in 1997, where he was "overcome with the urge to bend the lines he had already committed to paper." He then became obsessed with bending intricate lines of wire until he became a master of the craft. Stats for Whimsical Wire-Made Drawings Trending: Older & Mild
