Lee’s Arts On Display At Bob’s Open House

Lee’s sculptures.

Lee Hulteng is an artist Bob met earlier this year at a swap meet who designs metal sculptures out of old motorcycle and car parts. The uniqueness of these sculptures immediately caught Bob’s artistic eye. Not only is the overall concept of using recycled motorcycle parts a cool idea in itself, but many of the sculptures are more than just displays, they are functional; some are clocks, some offer storage, etc. To get an idea of Lee’s art you can visit his website, www.leesarts.com, but to see his work in person, join us April 27 at our Open House. Lee will be here with a full display of his work!

Not only is Lee’s art interesting, so is he! Lee got his “figure it out, make it work” approach from his father who was an engineer and got his artistic side from his mother, a talented artist and musician. In high school, after getting a reputation for having a steady hand, many of friends began turning to him to do custom brush work on their cars and motorcycles. He graduated junior college with an Associate of Arts degree in commercial art and went on to work as a freelancer, for ad agencies, at design studios, and for a local television station in his town. Later he became the staff artist of the Grand Forks Herald newspaper in North Dakota. Years later he landed in Maryland after being offered and accepting a job in Washington D.C. as senior illustrator for Knight Rider/Tribune News Service (now McClatchy Tribune).

If you visit his website, you will see his talent goes far beyond metal sculptures. In fact, his sculptures are more of a hobby. That is not to say the sculptures are armature by any means; just that the story telling and attention to detail in his illustrations is even more impressive!
