Matt Wilson Metal sculptor
“I definitely think artists can bring awareness to the way people think and feel about the environment, in hopes of bringing forth proactive discussion and change.”
Matt Wilson is an American artist who was was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. From a young age he showed an interest in art and developing his own innate ideas.
“It’s taken me years to collect all my materials, and I’m continuously developing my skills to work with these materials. I spent most of my life as an artist working in 2-D, drawing and painting. When I moved here eight years ago (to work as Resident Artist at Detyens Shipyard), I wanted to try a different medium, metal sculpture, and learned how to weld.”
It was really difficult to choose which photos to add here. You can have a look at more of his work on this video Matt Wilson Sculptures YouTube
