David Buckingham is an LA based artist http://www.buckinghamstudio.com/ who works with recycled metal parts of old cars which he finds on scrap yards. His work is witty, playful and provocative. He often expropriates pop cultural icons and film quotes to create bright three dimensional wall art and sculptures. While visiting his garage style studio in the city of Vernon, I was able to witness a mind-bending process of working with scrap metal. It’s an extremely physical (and I suspect very hazardous) process that involves cutting metal with a torch and then welding different pieces together to create the artwork. One of his largest sculptures which can be seen on one of the photos was created without any preliminary drawings or blue prints.
