- An artist is making nature-inspired realistic animal sculptures out of junk
- JK Brown who loves watching animals make the sculptures from scrap pieces of metals
- Brown shares that creating masterpieces is his way of celebrating the beauty of nature
Not everyone would care about the pieces of metals that were thrown away by other people. But for an artist from West Wales, every piece of these junked metals are priceless and are soon-to-be masterpieces.
In an article published on Bored Panda, artist JK Brown, shared how and why he creates animal sculptures that are made out of scrap pieces of metals which are considered by other people as trash.
“My name is JK Brown. I live in rural West Wales. This peaceful part of the country is known for being a precious habitat for its native wildlife, which is of constant inspiration to me,” Brown wrote.
Brown shared that he has always been in love with watching animals while creating masterpieces is his way of celebrating the beauty of nature.
“For as long as I can remember I have loved to watch animals (especially in the wild) and for as long as I can remember I have been drawing, making and creating as a way of celebrating the beauty of nature,” he said.
Moreover, he talked about how he gathers the materials that he is using in his creations.
“Often when I’m out walking I pick up fragments of metal that have been thrown away. Sometimes fly-tipped or washed up on beaches, I patiently reassemble these pieces into monuments to the natural world around me: a habitat that is becoming increasingly fragmented. I find that my own process of reversing this fragmentation is, for me, a calming antidote to the madness of endless consumption,” he wrote in his article.
