Willard Wigans is notorious for his very specific form of sculpture. Wigans has been crafting art that has literally been pulled out of thin air! Using an original technique that requires a high powered microscope, and supreme patience, Willard pulls fibers from the air and twines them together to form the smallest statuettes that he then builds on, and ultimately paints.
Many of his pieces are familiar pop references, such as disney characters, famous landmarks, and even presidents! Did we mention that he can fit each of these on the head of a pin or in the eye of a needle? His work has inspired many nanotechnologists into thinking his methods are beneficial to nanotechnological advances in the future, but we just love the sheer creativity!
