Car Part Art by James Corbett

Since 1999, Aussie James Corbett has been sculpting life-like pieces made with vintage car parts. James discovered his talent while running an auto recycling business in Brisbane, and with positive encouragement from friends and family he began creating sculptures of cars, bikes, animals and birds.

After his first successful exhibition in Brisbane in June 1999, James achieved a 3 year stint as a feature artist at the Brisbane International Motor Show. Since then, he's received worldwide recognition and acclaim through his many commissions, exhibitions and subsequent awards; his sculptures being considered one of the finest examples of assemblage art today.

No car part is bent into shape when incorporating it into the sculpture. The original integrity of the part is preserved.
