Joe Rupley

 

Hometown: Adrian, MI

Discipline: Sculpture

Joe Rupley started pencil drawling at the age of 10. He continued throughout middle and high school, taking as many art classes as possible. In the early 90s, he came across a guy airbrushing a motor bike and he was hooked. Joe is a self-taught artist, utilizing magazines from the West Coast. He is always interested in learning new ways of improving his technique.

Joe’s preferred mediums are wood, metal, plastic, wire, airbrush acrylic paints, and hot glue. All sculptures and clocks are all hand cut and sanded by the artist. Some of the work is then clear coated for depth and a 3-dimensional appearance. At least 60% of materials are recycled.
