A collection of Malen's found-metal sculptures
ABOUT the ARTIST
The multi-talented Malen Pierson can best be described as a folk artist, a collector of found objects, and a true innovator when it comes to the integration of old tools, farm equipment, antiquities, and all forms of metal. Pierson is among the lucky few who have the creative vision to see what discarded items can become. He skillfully practices the art of fusion – combining rare and abandoned metals, tools, and recycled materials into highly desirable art forms.
Malen’s artistic success is due to his truly unique welding and assemblage process. His style incorporates a dense composition of various metals and found objects into full-sized horses, moose, goats, buffalo, herons, and other farm animal sculptures.
He has sold hundreds of pieces of his work, which are now housed in local, national, and international private collections, including those of Robert Redford, Martha Stewart, Queen Latifah and Jonny Depp. Malen Pierson’s work can be found in many galleries across the country, including those listed below.
