Transparent Wire Portraits

A Korean sculptor, Seung Mo Park knows a special pattern of weaving weightless wire portraits. Seung Mo Park’s portraits consist of hundreds of thousands of small holes formed by the intricacies of wire in huge sheets. To obtain whole-leaf full portrait, the artist simply cuts off the extra parts of the wire creating twist layers, which results in image formation on the wire sheet surface.

To avoid mistakes, the sculptor projects the outlines of the future portrait on the wire layer and is focused on this certaint pattern. He is deftly wielding a pair of metal scissors or pliers while cutting off the extra edges or parts.

Seung Mo Park sharpens this master technique for seven years. In return, each and every year famous galleries of modern art, both in Asia and Europe, welcome the works of this talented sculptor.
