We've previously posted Brooklyn-based Korean sculptor Seung Mo Park's incredible portraits made from wire. This morning we are equally if not more impressed by his sculptures constructed from aluminum wire. In this series, titled Human, Seung Mo bends and twists the wire in what seems to be an almost impossibly smooth and flawless fashion.

Being big fans, we have posted the work of Seungyea Park (aka Spunky Zoe) before. Born and raised in Seol, Korea, Park addresses the topic of 'Monstrousness' caused by fear in our inner world. She says, "Monsters are everywhere. At the moment 'I' within me faces the 'I' outside of me they try to avoid, conceal, and deny each other, considering the other a monster."
