Artist John Piccoli from Victoria, Australia is known locally as "The Spanner Man." The term "spanner" refers to a monkey wrench. Unlike other artists, he creates his works from old wrenches. As part of the 'reuse' movement, John helps our environment by re-purposing junk to newly found areas - in this case, art. The most impressive part? He contracted polio at the age of 8 and thus has been working from his wheelchair since.
He begins with these old junk wrenches.
This is John. He built his workshop with the right machinery, such as a cross-over gantry and many blocks/tackles, in order for him to operate from his wheelchair.
Then, this is what he creates!
John's work is an inspiration to us all, reminding us that we should never limit ourselves based on our own weaknesses. Instead, we should seek to foster and cultivate our strengths and passions in life. Bravo John!
