Wired Ultra Modern Art
Modern art, abstract art, call it what you will, but as you can see, artist Mike Glancey has a way with wires. Using wire cutters, blocks of wood, a hammer and a box of Band Aids, Mike spends anywhere from a few hours to months perfecting his craft… His materials of choice are 90% recycled and 10% storebought wire, copper and aluminium.
Mike explains his creative philosophy revolves around being unique… “Things that are strange, things that would not exist unless I made them… I have not seen anything quite like what I do but I have seen a lot of objects made from wire most of them looking like ‘real’ things though (animals, people, etc.) I try to make things that others have not,” says Mike.
Showcasing most of his work on artbreak.com, where you will find energetic, exciting and thought provoking pieces like ‘Kiss Legs’, ‘Charlie Carrots Rocking into Space on His Magical Multi Colored Carrot’ and ‘Spider Prison’, Mike sells his artwork anywhere from $250.00 to thousands of dollars, depending on the size and the amount of materials it takes to make it.
“It’s not just a job, it’s an addiction”… I can’t think of a better way to describe a job you love doing, and get paid for.
