Chicken Wire Art: No Longer Keeping the Chickens In

9/30/2010 07:51:00 PM ·


I've seen it in on farms, in a restaurant I purchased several years ago as a form of shelving, and in gardens, but I've never seen chicken wire used for art. It's an amazing product to use when forming art, covered with paper mache. I remember making an elephant back in high school out of chicken wire. Of course, it was completely covered and painted with raw materials.

About the Artist

Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Ivan 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.
