Finding Peace with Sculpting Street Artist TEJN - Brooklyn Street Art

Finding Peace with Sculpting Street Artist TEJN - Brooklyn Street Art | TEJN | Scoop.it

...Tejn just released a fresh batch of lock on sculptures. Made from salvaged iron found in the streets, welded into sculptures, and returned as art chained to public railings. The three pieces I have spotted so far, all speak of peace, and they seem almost tailored for the locations. Like the gun in the meat grinder, attached to a pole by the troubled People’s Park.”“The attention to detail is extraordinary. Look at the tiny hands on the man carefully winding up the peace sign! I find it impossible to pass a Tejn, and not feel instantly better.

Welded street art sculptures by TEJN

Welded street art sculptures by TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

Of all the different styles of ‘street art’ I have come across These ‘Lock on’ pieces by Danish artist, Tejn are in my opinion, the most creative and thoughtful pieces I have seen.  The figurine sculptures  made from recycled metal found on the street appear as though they are interacting with the surrounding environment. The most appealing part of viewing these lock on pieces is that these sculptures have really taken on the personality of the street, yet also project a sense of humor into their mundane and sometimes ugly environment, Making the figurines very endearing.

The idea behind lock on street art is to literally padlock and chain the art works to existing street furniture forcing the public to interact with the street furniture in a different way than normal. 

Unfortunately this also carries the danger of art work being stolen...
