Created by artist Jeremy Wilken, these whimsical sculptures are made from combining unwanted "junk" into one-of-a-kind designs.
Coming in all shapes, styles and sizes, you will always be able to find one of our Robots, Spaceships or Rayguns to bring just the right amount of playfullness into your home.
It takes a very special type of person to acknowledge and appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of everyday, commonplace objects. It requires even more intuition and inventive creativity for a person to elevate those discarded or devalued items… to combine things that were never intended to be anything other than what they were designed to be… and create art with them.
Working with various theater companies for the past 20+ years has earned me a unique appreciation for creating something from “nothing”. My love of disassembling and reassembling into something new grew from manifesting scenery and props for every imaginable (and unimaginable) setting and circumstance from a pile of lumber, cans of paint and an idea. For me, imagination is the purest art form.
My Woah-Botz sculptures are created to manifest joy and excitement by incorporating recognizable, common and ordinary individual parts that have lived out their usefulness. In my process, I have adopted the motto of “Keep it out of the landfill and put it on the mantle” to illustrate my desire to use mostly found objects in all of my artwork.
Creating something special and unique with each piece is important to me as an artist. With endless possible combinations of an endless variety of parts, no two of my sculptures are ever exactly the same. Each is an original. There are no reproductions. Just like people, there are only ever one-of-a-kinds!
DISCLAIMER: Woah-Botz are NOT toys! They are made primarily from metal parts that I cut and drill holes in, so they are bound to have pointy bits that hurt when you poke them. They are NOT functional! Unless you count functioning as a super awesome conversation piece that will totally make your friends jealous...cause they totally do that! DO NOT EAT! I mean...I feel like I shouldn't have to mention that, but then there's that one freaking guy who took a bath with his hairdryer and now we all have that giant stupid warning tag to deal with. Do NOT get them wet! Not that they will multiply like Gremlins, but just to be safe I wouldn't feed them after midnight either... you know, just in case!
