John Brown is a talented artist that transforms unwanted scraps of metal into breathtaking animal and bug sculptures that have a realistic design aesthetic. The anatomy of the creatures are recreated using various bits of different types of metal in a slew of colors to emulate different insect species.

The detail Brown accords to his work shows in the realism behind each of his insect sculptures. The pieces are by welding various scrap bits of metal together to recreate the legs, wings, antennas and elongated bodies of bugs such as the Red Admiral and Holly Blue butterfly types. Each piece is three-dimensional and made to scale to capture the true essence of the insect. Brown also focuses on other animals such as birds.
