Internationally renowned sculptor David Begbie has worked almost exclusively with the human form throughout his career. Since his first pioneering solo show in London 1984 a whole new genre of steel-mesh art has evolved and continues to grow. He is the master of wire mesh art and his work speaks for itself.

Master of Art Medium Wire Mesh

Drawing in Air – David Begbie transforms a light-weight steel or bronze wire mesh spectacularly into a dynamic three-dimensional figurative form.

A Begbie sculpture is hand-crafted and never moulded. Each wire mesh sculpture is unique with its own character made out of a single sheet of bronze or steel mesh.
Shadow Projection
The introduction of lighting is an integral part of a particular composition and has the most remarkable result. The use of projected shadows creates an optical fusion of image and object.

Sculpture Choice
This website features examples of available sculpture. Please enquire for further artwork by email, letting us know your desired size or subject and we’ll provide photos, prices and details of fitting artwork and/or suggest a commission.

If you wonder how a "Begbie" sculpture would fit in your environment, we offer to superimpose a sculpture into a photo of your envisaged space - just send us your snapshot by email.
… Begbie is able to shape the human form with his hands to produce the illusion of rippling musculature. He makes it seem as sensitive and pliable as wax…
Edward Lucie-Smith
Each work is an entity which has a far greater physical presence than any solid object could possibly have, because it has the power to suggest that it doesn’t exist.
