Science Fiction Junk Artist creating one of a kind sculptures from Steampunk to futurism, wacky to weird and beyond.

Artist Bio:

I live in Central Otago, New Zealand and create predominantly science fiction sculptures from discarded junk I collect from rubbish dumps, recycling centers and landfill. I gather and recycle screws, nuts, bolts, light fittings, sewing machines, plumbing parts and much more. My passions are ray guns, lamps, jetpacks, rockets and life size robots.

I think I am naturally able to tune into my nine-year-old inner self to be able to create these items. I have no rules, no strict genre or boundaries. Everything I create, I create for me, so that I am excited by it, then I offer them for sale. I create these pieces because i love to do it and get immense satisfaction from finding parts, imagining outcomes, working out how they can fit together and sitting back to enjoy the results. 

Please visit my website - spaceboyd.com to see more of my work or to enquire about commissioning a piece for home or business. I create unique "ice Breaker" pieces for business, these have included a tattoo studio who commissioned a giant tattoo gun, a giant dentists drill for a dental surgery and full sized robots for entrance ways and reception areas.

Everything is unique.
