John Prest has been making art of metal for over four decades. He learned the fundamentals of welding and metal work at R.R.C.C., but his techniques in painting motorcycles was born in experimentation and through curiosity. His love of using automotive and machining techniques have carried through to John's visual art pieces (displayed here with inscriptions).
