Scrap metal turned into extraordinary sculptures by John Lopez

John Lopez is an American artist from South Dakota, the author of impressive life-size sculptures made from the scrap he finds along the way. Passionate about the cultural peculiarities of his region, the Midwest, Lopez designs his creations inspired by the iconic figures of the bison, the cowboy on his horse, the grizzly bear, and even dinosaurs – a reference to archaeological sites, relatively common there –, among others.

My favorite part about these pieces is the texture. 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.
