We are used to throw away old car parts and unused cutlery at the junkyard. But the artist, Oregon-based, Aloha Brian Mock turns row metal into fanciful outdoor sculptures. He saves and uses the thrown out materials as nuts, screws, and bolts. And what he does is forming amazing animal and human figures.
For a long time, Mock has been discovering a number of artistic practices. And he has got revealing his love for “upcycling art” in 1990. He learned how to weld, and found him to think about his artistic ideas in the finish of metal sculptures.
And by today, he is creating an entire zoo of metallic animals which includes cats, dogs, and lions larger the real size. All of them are made from 100% regained materials.
In Mock’s words, “Giving old, everyday objects a new life as one sculpture is an artistically demanding, yet gratifying process”. As to him, his work is planned to put emphasis on resourcefulness and inspire the viewer in visit. As his experience, what fuels his talent is the reactions of the audience. And that leads visons to his creative life.
