Hi, I’m Baden Lloyd. I have spent most of my life creating and developing art, painting, drawing and pastel works. During this 20 years of experience, I discovered that my artwork just wasn’t quite fulfilling my passion. I started with an old sketch book and transformed my sketches into metal. Using recycled rusty corrugated iron and scrap metal junk from farms and old sheds.
I gain inspiration from the recycled metal materials that I have, each item speaks to me and presents itself when it is time for it to be repurposed into a creative artwork. The items I use have a history in them that resonates with different people of all ages for a range of reasons, it could be they remember seeing a similar item on a family property or they used that spanner on an old Holden Ute or other farm machinery. Giving each item a new purpose and life journey.
I enjoy creating works of art that capture the emotion of the characters and feel a sense of pride when the viewer is able to witness and feel the emotion coming from the artwork.
I have worked on several commission pieces that have relied on my active listening and being able to capture and sketch the customer’s thoughts and emotions onto paper, then bringing the art to life using a range of recycled metal material.
Each creation holds a personal emotion to myself as I have been on the journey with the client and my creativity transforms the recycled metal into their desired project.
There is no better feeling than the knowledge that my art has brightened someone’s day! I believe I can create wonderful artworks to be enjoyed by all generations.
