Original Art: Gavin Worth
A self-taught artist, the work of Gavin Worth is absolutely fascinating. Gavin is a truly international artist. He was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in New Mexico, spent eight years living in San Francisco, and currently resides in Cairo. No matter what part of the world he is in, Gavin is passionate about drawing, painting, and sculpture. It's his wire sculptures that recently grabbed my attention, and that I just had to write about.
His "freestanding line drawings" include a mix of steel and poplar that are transformed to create unbelievably beautiful images.
In his own words: My wire sculptures tell stories of simple human moments: a woman adjusting her hair, a face gazing from behind tightly wrapped arms, a mother gently cradling her baby. The honest, unguarded moments are the ones that I find to be the most beautiful.
You can view more of these human moments by visiting Gavin's website. There are so many amazing pieces to enjoy.
