My name is Willem Waerts and I create robotic animals made of skulls and bones, found objects and custom made parts which I call Mechanimals.
After I learned to prepare skulls and skeletons as a hobby people started to bring me stuff they found, and I ended up getting a lot of broken and damaged skulls and bones I had no use for, so I started “repairing “them using using my modelmaking and jewelers skills and this evolved in the creatures I make now.
A gallery asked me if they could sell my work, and since then I never stopped making sculptures, because I love creating them and I am thrilled to show them at the Saints and Sinners artshow.
