Brady Lueck is a world class artist from Southeastern Wisconsin focusing on welded steel as a direct art medium.
In 1999, after returning from a long-term overseas assignment in Thailand, Lueck entered a welding program at a local technical college. "It was important to me to become a skilled welder before launching into a sculpture career. So I spent two years learning the trade and exploring welded steel as an art medium. It is with this confidence in my technical skills that I can tackle challenges of large structural art projects."
Many unconventional approaches are employed to texture the sculpture surfaces. As a result, welds and other non-critical welds are often subjected to artistic license. "I believe that some of these techniques might make my work notable and discernible from the works of others."
Lueck also invests considerable effort planning each composition. This project engineering is important so that each piece serves not only the elements of design but is also functional and structurally sound.
Since 2005, Brady Lueck has been a "stay at home" Daddy and a full-time metal sculptor.
