Russ has lived on the Mornington Peninsula for more than 15 years and creating recycled metal sculptures for almost as long.
Russ creates all kinds of metal creatures. Animals, birds, robots, ray guns and everything in between.
Each work contains many recycled metals sourced from around Melbourne and surrounding areas.
In 2012 he was fortunate enough to be selected as an artist for the “Mali in the City” program for the Royal Melbourne Zoo. “Rusty Mali” was created with thousands of metal pieces sculpted together in the shape of a baby elephant. “Rusty Mali” was on display in the city for six weeks before being auctioned for charity.
In 2015 Russ collaborated with Frankston City to design and construct decorative sculptures for the festive program including reindeers and large tree structures.
He continues to collect metals for his creations. After all, it’s half the fun.
