Simone Wojciechowski is a wire sculptor, working in galvanised steel, copper and brass wire.
Simone, was born in Berlin/ Germany, she moved to South Africa, Cape Town in 2005 where she still lives and works today.
It was here where she met Painter and wire Sculptor Ismail Smith, who’s work inspired her. She discovered her gift and passion through his mentoring. As her confidents grew she found her own language and understanding of form. Since her work started selling the consistent quality of her pieces has created a steady demand for her work.
She chose the female form to express movement, form and motive, displaying an emotional quality that brings her figures to life.
Her works are in private collections in the UK, US, Germany, Denmark and South Africa.
Sculpting is my absolute passion. I want to show the ability and beauty of wire, which I think, is much underrated. To take a piece of wire and turn it into a beautiful figure, gives me incredible joy.
My challenge always, is to fulfill the remit of not only creating a subject as a piece of sculpture that will make you stop, stand and stare, but also challenge.
