Artist’s Bio: John Bruun has been metal sculpting since 1988. Metal sculpting is a passion showcasing his artistic side—sculpting and painting come naturally to him. Early on, he was influenced by his instructor at the New School of Architecture, Malcolm Lealand. John graduated from the New School of Architecture in 1992. He combines his background in architecture and steel fabricating to create his work. His 35 years of working in the family steel business allows him the freedom to create sculptures from their supply of recycled material in every shape and size imaginable. John’s artistic mind is constantly dreaming of his next creation.
