French Wire Artist
Jean-Michel Collell is a French artist who has explored various mediums before turning to wire mesh to create hyper-realistic portraits.
Inspired by cinema and music, and by using the technique of cross-hatching, the features of his characters are recreated with such precision that one can see a realistic photograph emerging from a distance.
This savoir-faire requires keen attention to details so that the shapes and shades can create these striking monochromatic images.
With this technique, the artist reveals the strengths and weaknesses of the individuals portrayed.
