Am I Scrap Metal Artist?
Scrap metal artists also do the same. How? They too make things. The only difference is that scrap metal artists, as the name implies, use metals for making objects of their interest. They use these deserted and dejected shapes to form a fresh shape—known as scrap metal art. Nuts, bolts, screws, washers, keys, sprockets, chains, gears etc. are common elements of any art from scrap. These pieces are blended and welded together in such uniformity that ‘WOW’ becomes irresistible. You might have realized that you too have heaps of scrap metal around you such as broken watches, engine spare parts, outdated motherboards and hard disks etc. Well, don’t throw them away. Use them for recycled art. What you need is just little creativity and some tools.
Sci-fi Movie Monsters:
Though scrap metal art allows you to make whatever you imaginations want yet most of the inspiration comes through sci-fi movies. Sci-fi movies are biggest source of inspiration for scrap metal artists as these movies provide with plenty of metallic characters. And more interestingly, these characters carry so much details with them that one wonders whether they are metals or real alive characters. Sci-fi art is all about making these characters through scrap metals.
Likewise, Star wars Art is quite celebrated among scrap metal artists. These artists aren’t letting epic star wars fade from memories. Characters from Darth Vader to R2D2 and C3PO are still alive through this art. The best thing about these star wars characters is that they are not as huge as they were in movie. They are smaller, they are beautiful and they are interactive. By seeing these sculptures you will realize that turning your drawing room into one of star war’s galaxies won’t be a bad idea at all.
Recycled art and you:
