“I like to give my sculptures emotional quality that breathes life and energy into my figures,” says large wire sculpture artist Simone Wojciechowski.
Simone Wojciechowski is a German-born large wire sculpture artist. Longing for a new challenge and adventure, Simone decided to leave for Cape Town, South Africa. There, she encountered beautiful scenery she immediately fell in love with, including other amazing artists. Among those is I.Smith, a wire sculptor and painter who later inspired Simone’s interest in sculpting with wire. Through I.Smith’s mentoring, Simone discovered and embraced her passion for wire sculptures.
As time went by and as her confidence grew, Simone discovered her unique style. “Looking back I have come a long way since I’ve started 12 years ago,” says Simone. “I’m so grateful to have been able to dedicate full time to my work and make a living out of it.”

Studying the human body
Being an autodidact, Simone took it upon herself to thoroughly study the human body including the measurement, the muscle, the shape, and the form from a 3D perspective. She found superior knowledge in the breathtaking sculptures of Michelangelo and Auguste Rodin and has since continued to study their works and unique artistry.
Ongoing large wire sculpture projects
Simone has just finished an amazing large-scale sculpture for a client in England, though she’s currently working on a commission of a hanging sculpture for a client in Italy.
“I would think that my style is modern, contemporary, and realistic,” Simone says. “I like to give my sculptures emotional quality that gives my figures life and energy. I want them to be unique pieces of art.”
The most wonderful thing I have learned along the way is to never give up!” says Simone. “There are always obstacles in the way but if you BELIEVE you can do anything you put your mind to, then certainly you will!”
Creating an artistic legacy
“Sculpting is my passion and I want people to feel and resonate with my work.”
Simone wants to show the ability and beauty of wire sculptures, which she believes has been grossly underrated. Also, she mentions the incredible joy and satisfaction she derives from turning a piece of boring wire into a beautiful figure.
Though she feels utter satisfaction from creating, her greatest challenge is creating sculptures that not only attract but challenge the average human. “I like my pieces, apart from their uniqueness to stand out on their own as pieces of contemporary art that creates a space around them,” she says.
