Tomohiro Inaba Creates Sinister Animal Coil Crafts

These beautiful zoological steel sculptures by Tomohiro Inaba are frighteningly baleful. His sculptures are a culmination of a twisted jumble of steel wire that creates an effect that closely resembles violent scratches. His art starts off as an ordinary steel sculpture of an animal before it slowly starts to come apart and to become nothing more than scribbles.

This interesting effect reminds me of someone pulling a thread of a knitted sweater and continuing until all that is left is a pile of yarn at the end. The artist pulls the thread of his steel beasts until they are nothing more than a small jumble. Tomohiro Inaba displays the nature of life through these decomposing works of art.
