Former bronze sculptor John Lopez <www.johnlopezstudio.com>,
realized the versatility of scrap metal and turned it into stunning pieces
of art. He thinks metal sculptures have this unique aesthetic that gives
off a magnificent but raw kind of art.
Living in South Dakota, and inspired by the American West, Lopez had the
idea of creating metal sculptures out of discarded farm equipment.
Incredibly intricate creations, with a feeling of dynamicity that makes
them almost look like they’re alive.
“I just start grabbin’ stuff from the pile and welding it, in and if you
weld enough of the same thing on over and over it creates this really cool
texture that I’ve never seen in these kinds of pieces before. And I think
that’s what draws people in”.
