  3. 3. Robert Bradford’s Inspiration <ul><li>Robert Bradford’s Inspiration all started of because of his children.

He uses many different materials such as whole book magazines, scrap buildings, timber furniture, and tree waste such as twigs. </li></ul><ul><li>He says a good reason for making his sculptures from environmental waste is because it is cheap. He also says he makes art because they represent smaller sculptures that are made by people who have had no credit for making them. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Why He Makes Art <ul><li>Robert Bradford says his interest and why he makes art out of science fiction and animals is because he considers himself to be like a mad scientist trying to create life that is also another reason why he makes his sculptures human size and sometimes even larger then life. </li></ul><ul><li>He says he wonders what it would be like being animals so that’s why he makes sculptures.
