Artist Transforms Old Scrap Metal Into Magnificent Animal Sculptures

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.
You can check out more of JK Browns’ incredible work on his Facebook page or Etsy page.
