I’ve been noticing a lot of this incredibly crafted wire art lately. I must say the spatial thinking and artistry that goes into these types of pieces is inspiring.  Lisbon-based sculptor David Oliveira creates these wire sculptures that look as if they were sketched in the air.  These are a couple of his anatomically themed pieces.  David knows quite a bit of anatomy—he received his Master’s degree in Artistic Anatomy from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon, similar to a medical illustration degree.
