Photorealistic Steel Wire Mesh Portraits by Seung Mo Park


Brooklyn-based Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park never ceases to amaze us with his skilled craftsmanship in working with wire. In addition to sculpting three-dimensional figures with the malleable, metallic rods, he manages to carefully clip layered sheets of stainless steel wire mesh into photorealistic portraits of people, places, and things.

The artist's ongoing work, entitled Maya, utilizes Park's keen eye for shapes and shadows to form his monochromatic works. His multilayered lattice structures use their network of crossing wires to create deeper shades in areas of concentration and, alternatively, a sense of light in areas where Park clips the wires down.

Ultimately, the time-consuming works are the result of multiple sheets of steel mesh working together to generate one cohesive image from a vantage point. If viewed from a side angle, many of the sculptural portraits just look like webbed panels of steel that have been aligned.
