MJ Art Wire Sculpture

Award-winning, Australian sculptor, Ivan Lovatt, created this unique piece of chicken wire Michael art.

His website describes Ivan as having been born in Nairobi, Kenya. He spent his childhood in Africa, England, Wales and Germany. When not outside enjoying the natural environment, Ivan was drawn to all forms of artistic expression, and began drawing birds and African wildlife. As an adult, Ivan worked mostly in construction, but art was always an important part of his life. Ivan would spend all of his spare time learning about art, experimenting and trying to explore each medium to its potential. Ivan exhibited his sculpture and paintings in group exhibitions at the Guildhall Grantham, before emigrating to Australia in 1994. He now lives in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

Inspired by his new environment Ivan focused his creativity on the hands on reality of sculpture. Ivan is particularly excited by the transformation of such an ordinary medium as chicken wire to a piece of art. He is drawn towards creating work that is accessible, recognizable and meaningful to the public. Ivan’s personality is represented in his sculpture. His work is honest, often quirky and amusing, yet demonstrates compassion for his subject, and above all has great integrity.

    Wow Rusty, your wire work is truly beautiful! I would totally appreciate seeing ANYTHING that you might create as related to Michael Jackson. I’d surely be willing to feature it, as well, on this trafficked blog site. Your work looks very meticulous, refined and very creative. Blessings to you!
