On first glance these may look like 3D wire sculptures, but in fact they are incredibly realistic digital renders that appear as if they were formed from metal wire.
Polish 3D artist and graphic designer Mat Szulik’s latest series of artwork, ‘The Wires v2‘, portrays nature-inspired objects, such as forest creatures or insects, but in a manmade digital form.
Although most of the renderings appear to be predominantly constructed of silver wire, many contain a gold core, which adds a further dimension to the pieces.

Szulik has also created a series of renders that seem to have been carved from wood. These also possess Szulik’s so-called “low-poly style”, which is a polygon mesh used in 3D computer graphics.
