Paul Tinson

3D Artist

I am an emerging 3D artist specialising in welded metal sculptures constructed predominately from recycled or discarded metals of a mechanical nature. My aim is to use these recycled metals to create familiar and abstract objects. Inspiration for my artwork comes from my passion of engineering, music, and the shape and form of the human skull. My artwork engages subjects as diverse as heavy metal, modern garden sculpture, musical instruments and death. Each piece is unique and individually crafted based on the material I have at hand.

I try to keep the recycled object’s original shape so the piece can be viewed as both a collection of individual parts, and as an artistic singularity. Over the years I have found the additive process of welding metal an organic experience that enhances and promotes creative freedom. Working in multiple dimensions and the immediacy of the additive process of welding metal is extremely fulfilling, and combining metal, stone, concrete, and other natural and industrial materials opens limitless sculptural horizons.
