Bringing the cold element of steel to life, Michael Perks is a breakout artist that is turning heads. From sheets of steel Perks cuts, layers, bends and welds metal to the verge of his imagination.

Over the past 25 years Perks has worked as a millwright, welder and snowmaker in the ski industry. He became know for his ability to fix large scale, obscure problems with innovative inventions of his own making. This ability to think differently, create with his own hands and work with huge objects can be seen in his art. Perk's statues range from small and delicate to monstrosities that take four men to lift. Michael is now co-owner of Little Monkey Metal Works, a large-scale plasma art company that specializes in decorative railings, elaborate fire pits, artistic signs and other custom metal works.
