Artist John Lopez South Dakota

Sculptor John Lopez was born and raised on a ranch in Western South Dakota. He started doing bronze sculptures and moved to making art from scrap metal.

His Blog is here: John Lopez Studios Blog

From his site:
Sometimes the young artist is asked what he imagines his grandfather, the pioneer stockman, Albert Lopez, would have thought of his scrap-iron sculpture. Perhaps the best answer was given by another old-timer, who came to one of his exhibits. The old gentleman spent considerable time peering intently at a scrap metal saddle. After long study, he announced, “Now that’s art!”
