Metal and Metal Crafts:
To artists relating to all fields, metals hold special reverence as these metals have always helped them shaping and framing their artistry through them. Robotic terminators, predators, aliens and their weaponry are examples metals usage in modern movie art and sci-fi art. With increasing popularity of such characters, a new era of science and literature has begun. But, for the sake of our earth and environment, recycled art should be focused more and more.
Metals vs Environment:
To keep up with demand, metallurgy was encouraged more and more until 2nd half of last century when men realized that we have imbalanced the environmental equilibrium. For not only the environment, the very life of man has been hit hard by them. For instance, heavy metals ions are enough to cause cancer, organ diseases, nervous damage, and at most, death. And since then, environment has become the prime focus of politicians and social environmentalists.
Metals and Modern Arts:
Recycling is a process of employing already existing things for other uses and applications. So when these articles are abandoned by us as an acute form of junk, litter and waste, scrap artists pick them up from vendors and start turning them into arts crafts. In modern movies, robotic characters are quite common. So, making scrap sculptures of these characters is a best use for the metals lying in junk yards.
These terminators, predators, Spartans, transformers, scorpions, motor cycles and furniture made out of scrap metals are worth thousand dollars. They teach the humanity the lesson of being beautiful, profitable and Eco-friendly. Besides, these metal crafts and scrap sculptures carry a strange sense of beauty that draws everybody towards it. The beauty lies in the process of transformation that is how a heap of junk and trash is converted into a piece of art which is worth treasuring.
