David Madero is a Mexican-American sculptor and furniture designer, but as that description doesn’t really do justice to the awesome art he creates, let’s just call him the heavy-metal hero of the weld art world.
Based in Torreón, Mexico, Madero is the founder of Madero/Co, a welded art company that can do things with metal that you wouldn’t have thought possible. Considered to be one of the foremost welding sculptors in the world, it’s easy to see why when you look at these twisted masterpieces.
In partnership with his father, master sculptor Rogelio Madero, the two are responsible for producing a wide array of surreal and fantastical artwork out of steel, brass, copper and bronze. From large pieces to smaller sculptures and even a line of silver and gold jewelry, there seems to be nothing these guys can’t do with metal.
