Art Through the Eye of a Needle
Artist Willard Wigan will be exhibiting his awesome micro-sculptures through the Atlanta Art Gallery 1/28 - 3/27. I have to say, that this stuff amazes me.
“It began when I was five years old,” says Willard. “I started making houses for ants because I thought they needed somewhere to live. Then I made them shoes and hats. It was a fantasy world I escaped to where my dyslexia didn’t hold me back and my teachers couldn’t criticize me. That’s how my career as a micro-sculptor began.”
Check out more information on this fabulous sculptor here. I can't wait to see his work in person. Each piece fits in the eye of a needle. Wow!
