Ivan Lovatt is a professional sculptor who has been creating amazing sculpture for the past 6 years. Ivan initially worked with driftwood and reclaimed timber, which he fashioned into exquisite representations of birds and wildlife. Later he turned to chicken wire. By layering, twisting and shaping this very ordinary medium Ivan recreates portraits of famous people such as Michael Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and The Beatles. Ivan received a great deal of publicity and public acclaim for this work and won the Swell Festival People’s Choice in 2004.
