Robot Sculpture, SwellBot from the Beginnings Series
ONE-OF-A-KIND ART SCULPTURE
Robot Name : SwellBot
Robot Series : Beginnings
All custom art pieces are sculpted using items found at flea markets and antique shops and are not meant to be toys. As such, you will find patina, scratches, and/or dents in the various materials. All of these imperfections add to the beauty and character of the final sculpture.
SwellBot began her life on a workbench beginning with the Brownie camera found at a flea market in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. From there, she began to take shape one piece at a time and slowly grew into a robot themed surfer. Perhaps there were to many hours spent in the workshop, dreaming of sandy beaches and warm turquoise waters and surf boarder friends that ultimately created this character in my mind.
SwellBot is stuck in a time warp. She still has the illusion she's living the 20th century beach bum lifestyle. Her daily 9:00am to 5:00pm grind isn't exactly what people would call "work". While the SeekRbots explore the galaxy looking for stolen relics, she dreams of riding surf all day. Imagination takes over as she sees herself loading up the trailer each morning with a nifty stack of freshly built long-boards from factory 32. She gulps down a dark roasted caffeine infusion, cranks up the radio and heads down to the beach to test drive the new planks. An adrenaline junkie at heart, she rides the powerful supertube wall of swell with ease. She dictates the ride with aggression, skimming 300 yards to shore, putting the new board designs through a rigorous quality assurance test. SwellBot has big aspirations of hitting Oahu's North Shore pipeline one day and competing in the Vans Triple Crown.
