Made with wire figurative sculptures and presented as sketches in three dimensions, David Oliveira is a sculptor from Lisbon who has intriguing, seemed surreal beautiful spirit. Oliveira creates delicate figurative sculptures using wire that’s formed to look like manically drawn ink sketches on top of photographs.
“Inspiration for what I choose to represent comes from many different places, but in the main, I am inspired by drawing,”
After graduating with a degree in Sculpture from the University of Fine Arts in Lisbon in 2008, Oliveria quickly turned his attention from ceramics to wire – exhibiting two award-winning shows the following year.
