Biography


Born in Nairobi,Kenyaa


professional sculptor who has been creating sculpture for private collections, corporations and public exhibition for the past 6 years. Ivan’s work is characterized by his ingenuity and innovation, which motivates him to find new and interesting ways to capture his love of nature and his fascination of humanity.




Ivan initially worked with driftwood and reclaimed timber, which he fashioned into exquisite representations of birds and wildlife. Ivan received a great deal of publicity and public acclaim for this work and won the Swell Festival People’s Choice in 2004 with his representation of a flightless bird “Running Bird Walking”.




Ivan’s versatility and adaptability are clearly demonstrated by his return to using chicken wire, a medium that lends itself to the sensitivity and delicacy of his expression. By layering, twisting and shaping this very ordinary medium Ivan creates both abstract and realistic representations, which are tactile, appealing to the viewer to touch. As Ivan’s skills developed and evolved he was drawn to figurative work, and Ivan began a series of portraits of famous people which candidly demonstrates his superior level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Ivan’s wire work has received many awards and a great deal of media coverage
