ABOUT BJ LEKKONG

Concept And Creativity Of “Lekkong Art”
Metal Sculpture Artists

My talent and creativity shone in the ability to weld and lathe metal since I was eight years old. My architectural knowledge also enhances my ideas and creations, especially when I work with metal and shapes swirling, billowing lines that express both vitality and tenderness. I strive to create possibility out of impossibility. Each of my art pieces is unique and one-of-a-kind, because I believe in telling unique and individual stories.

I conceive and executes each of his piece by himself, enjoying a great degree of freedom and relying on exceptional physical and mental strength that results in magnificent creations. Each of my works has no copy, no duplication – it’s the sole existence in the world and the universe.
