A Scrap Metal Homage To Animals

A Scrap Metal Homage To Animals

South Dakotan sculptor John Lopez creates vibrant, life-sized scrap metal sculptures with a uniquely western American twist. In his hands, old discarded farm equipment is recycled into sculptures of iconic creatures from the American West, like a horse plowing a field, or a Texas Longhorn.

Lopez already had a career as a bronze sculptor, but after creating a family grave for his deceased aunt using scrap metal, he began creating recycled metal sculptures out of found or donated pieces of metal as well.

“My favorite part about these pieces is the texture,” explains Lopez. “I just start grabbin’ stuff from the pile and welding it, in and if you weld enough of the same thing on over and over it creates this really cool texture that I’ve never seen in these kinds of pieces before. And I think that’s what draws people in.”

If you think of animals as fine art and not as food, sift through the pile of promotions at http://KindMeal.my/ for your next meat-free meal.
