Bruno Lefevre-Brauer, an artist from Paris, France uses very interesting medium for his art. He finds discarded industrial parts and then transforms them into robot sculptures which are all unique art pieces with a particular story to tell.
More than their technological features, he tries to reveal the original, almost primitive, form of the robots he creates. +Brauer carefully chooses vintage objects that have an industrial past, that are marked by time and whose patina has been molded by years of manual use. He admires the beauty, sometimes hidden, of these discarded industrial parts, alters their appearance, sculpts them, and incorporates light sources into their structure before assembling the parts together to create a unique and poetic piece.
The beauty of the materials and the venerable patinas express their beauty in the light of day, while at night, it is the turn of the strange, evocative light fittings to reveal their magic.
Abandoned or forgotten in workshops and garages, the industrial parts are reborn in unique works of art that embrace us with their kind presence, imposing personality, and amazing humanity. Each piece is a statement of poetic resistance to mass-consumption. In the gallery below you can check out charming illuminated metal upcycled art robots from the series called “Viva la Roboluciòn!”
