For G.A. Jank, nothing is waste as each used product can find a place in your homes rather than being junked in landfills. Jank’s passion for creating art pieces out of metallic junk such as a used oil tank is simply awe-inspiring as he works endlessly on each piece of his sculpting to perfection.
Used bulky oil tanks, wharf nails and other such items are salvaged by Jank and used to create his masterpieces. His recent sculpture of a pair of herring cranes is demonstrative of his sheer hard work and dedication which took him around 120,000 hammer strokes to craft the piece.
Jank’s artwork includes natural sculptures like those of cats, birds, flowers and abstract art pieces. His natural flair for creativity stems from the fact that he sees art in all forms.
Our landfills are predominantly filled with metallic junk that is not only voluminous but is also very hard to recycle. It is heartening to have artists put in sincere efforts to transform bulky metal junk into marvelous sculptures.
Janks and his wife also host a private art show in their backyard for budding artists. Janks tries to bring more exposure to new talent and also foots the entire bill which is very much unlike other art exhibitions. Creativity that stems out from the love of our environment and surfaces as an artistic form is an absolute pleasure for all.
