Chicken Wire – A Study In Art

Artist Ivan Lovatt makes remarkably lifelike sculptures of famous folks, icons and wildlife out of poultry chicken wire.



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. Ivan would spend all of his spare time learning about art, experimenting and trying to explore each medium to its potential. Ivan exhibited his sculpture and paintings in group exhibitions at the Guildhall Grantham, before emigrating to Australia in 1994.

He now lives in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
