Sculptures Made From Recycled Automobile Parts by Tom Samui

Swiss artist Tom Samui has been creating junkyard wonders for the last decade or so. He works with a team of 15 people creating these amazing sculptures. Tom has created hundreds of these sculptures, entirely made out of scrap car and motorcycle parts.

You’ll find animals, vehicles, people, creatures from fantasy and even some furniture in his collection. Many of the sculptures aren’t small, either. His T-Rex is about 28 feet in height. The build process involves collecting cars from a junkyard, then sorting through the parts. Then they are cleaned, and welded together, then polished and lacquered. Nothing is wasted. It takes about 400 hours to complete a large sculpture. This translates to about two to three months.
