James Corbett

James Corbett has been creating his incredibly life-like sculptures from car parts since late 1988. At the time, he was the proprietor of a specialist motor wrecking business in Brisbane, Australia. Now he has gained an international following as a highly collectable and sought after artist. His sculptures capture a glimpse, a moment, a second in time of the subject, whether that be a bike as it hurls down a board track in the 1900’s, a car as it is being man-handled around a corner in a race, or a dog looking up at you as if to say “OK, did you say “walk”!? His ability to make such life-like pieces out of inanimate material is his unique gift, one which touches people from all walks of life, from any age group. They make people want to touch them, and they make people smile, something James feels is a pretty satisfying end result!
