Tomas Vitanovsky Welds Animal Sculptures Out of Scrap Metal

It all started with a love for cars and motorcycles. Born in 1970 in the Czech Republic, Tomas Vitanovsky started his career as a motorcycle stunt driver before an injury ended his promising career.

He then shifted gears, tuning and fixing bikes to earn a living. While throwing out some used engine parts from a motorbike he had finished, Tomas got the idea of welding them together. Soon he was turning discarded bearings, gears and chains into amazing metal sculptures.

The stunt driver, turned mechanic, turned artist has now completed over 30 sculptures and he continues to improve his craft as his sculptures become more complex and intricate. Vitanovsky is currently represented by the First Art Gallery in the United Kingdom where you can find his works available for purchase.
