Taiichiro Yoshida Creates Beautiful Metal Sculptures of Animals

Japanese artist Taiichiro Yoshida creates these beautiful metal sculptures of animals crafted in a delicate way with so many details that it’s easy to mistake them for digital renderings. In his work, Yoshida uses silver, bronze, and copper to create shapes like flowers, leaves, and butterflies. He hand-forms every single detail and colors them by heating and cooling the metals in a certain way and creates animals like monkeys, cats, birds, and rabbits, among many others.

Yoshida graduated in metal carving from Tokyo University of the Arts. He was born in Tokyo in 1989. He’s had numerous exhibitions and the audience loves his work. You can see more from him on his website and Instagram. In the meantime, scroll down to see some of his sculptures we picked as favorites.
