About the Artist
I am an assemblage sculptor dedicated to enjoying what I do.
I feel fortunate to have gotten this far.
“Vintage Collectible Sculpture and Assemblage” by Monty Monty
I assemble to create a theme. Discreet items of interest and vintage collectibles are sculpted into a whole and unified form. I take antiques, curios, cast-off objects, and sometimes family heirlooms and breathe
new life into them, rendering new ways to look at old things. My approach is to create a natural look to
the assembled work by using creative methods. I use hand tools. I do not weld. I take great care in the restoration of each component and attempt to create a vintage quality within the work.
I enjoy sharing stories about each new piece I create and include an itemized list of components with
information that accompanies the work.
Monty's art is held in numerous private collections often catching the eye of other creatives, including filmmakers, script writers, musicians, and poets, including former California Poet Laureate and Chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts, Dana Gioia.
His work is also represented in various public collections including installations at parks, libraries, museums, wineries and community centers.
His artwork has also found its way into many private collections in several countries throughout the world. He lives and maintains his studio in Northern California.
