Artist transforms unwanted scrap metal into incredible animal sculptures like none you’ve seen

Have you ever heard the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” before? Well, I’ve been exposed to this saying since I was born, and nothing illustrates it better than the story of JK Brown and his scrap metal works of art.

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.

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. 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.

 

What did you think about JK Brown’s creations? Aren’t they just magnificent? We want to hear your thoughts. Let us know in the comments below!

Please SHARE these works of art with your friends and family.
