David Oliveira's art looks like it's been drawn freehand across the world with a black pen - but in fact, it's all intricately assembled wire sculptures.
After graduating with a degree in Sculpture from the University of Fine Arts in Lisbon in 2008, Oliveria quickly turned his attention from ceramics to wire - exhibiting two award-winning shows the following year.
"Inspiration for what I choose to represent comes from many different places, but in the main, I am inspired by drawing," he explains.
Oliveria quit a masters in Compared Anatomy to turn his focus to wire fulltime, but not before learning how to beautifully capture the human form.
The result are sculptures that capture a sense of living movement and permanence at the same time.
