Joel Sullivan

Sculpture, Booth 712

Joel Sullivan was born an artist and grew up creating in many different mediums with any opportunity.  Self-taught and talented, he continues to make opportunities and works at his art as a full-time job. His studio in an old renovated carriage house in the family backyard in Halifax.  For the past 25 years, he has been transforming sheet metal, scrap metal, and unwanted parts into various different forms. Metal is a raw, hard, blank material that Joel bends, cuts, & welds into beautiful sculptures. Joel works with the element and unusable parts to guide the images in his head and together the art begins to take form.  His inspiration is the process of creating.  The act of creating is what fuels his passion.
