The wire animal sculptures created by Lisbon-based artist David Oliveira are as incredible as his previous works. As though drawn in mid-air, they look as though they have leapt from the pages of a sketchbook straight into real life. As whimsical as they are wiry, the creations will make people appreciate these beautiful creatures in a whole new light.
From lions to pelicans, the wire animal sculptures involve quite a few different species. What makes them particularly captivating is the amount of emotion that can be detected in each face. Yet Oliveira manages to avoid turning them into cartoonish characters. There is a majesty present in all of the wire animal sculptures that would probably be better experienced in person. Especially when they're installed in a stark gallery.
