Scrap Metal Artist
When I think of scrap metal, I think of making money from other peoples laziness. Probably not the first thing you think of though. You might think of a huge yard with old cars and pipe piled sky high with a huge crusher compacting it down, kinda like our homepage pic. For some really keen, and we think cool people, they think in a whole different spectrum. Here’s 2 scrap metal artist you may never have known about until now.
Scrap Metal Artist
James Corbett is from Australia, so not quite as known as some of his counter parts here in the states. If you like truly eclectic art pieces, that you may look at and the first word out of your mouth is “cool”, then his work may be for you. James has only been working in the metal arts since 1998, but has truly found his place. In 2002 he was invited to exhibit at the Essen Motor Show, Germany. Now twelve years later, he is still growing in popularity and has now held several successful solo exhibitions in England and America, while still exhibiting in three of Australia’s capital cities. He has completed several large corporate commissions for public display, and sold pieces into the collections of some of the world’s largest companies, and yet can still be perceived as an artist for the people. His work and more of his story can be found at his site jamescorbettart.com.
Our next artist is Kevin Caron out of Phoenix, we’ll call him local (in comparison to Australia). Kevin is a master of re birthing the discarded scrap we pass by every day. With the ability to look at a pile of rusty scrap lying in a pile, and know within minutes that a pink ornate cactus will be the end product, is truly a gift. Kevin is also the master of how to’s. Kevin boast multiple videos on everything from welding to artwork to 3d printing. Either way, at his site www.kevincaron.com , there is plenty to see and enjoy!
