Whimsical

Self-taught copper artist, Al De La Vega, has discovered

an artistic path that’s well coordinated with his sense of humor.

His diverse artwork is handcrafted from copper and enhanced

with various patinas creating one-of-a-kind hues in unique designs.

He shapes, bends, curves and tints the copper to conform to his minds images.

The finishes are worked and formed over time like fine wine becoming more beautiful with age.

He finds the finish is the essential component to every piece he creates.

He specializes in Florida sea-life and whimsical characters

that he creates in his mind which is filled with a huge sense of humor.

 When interviewed by the Sun Herald he was asked, “Why he creates such funny creatures?”

Without skipping a beat he quipped, “Life is too serious to take seriously.”

“If my artwork can make someone smile than I’ve accomplished what I’ve set out to do.”

    • As a young teen he had helped my father – a plumber – with his jobs. A way of making points with his hopefully future father-in-law. : ) His creations are always his designs that seem to get more and more whimsical as times goes by. Glad you enjoyed, Gilly. Keep in mind that you can e mail me at any time for you own private blogger friends discount. I’m happy you like his artwork. Thanks : )
