About SKRAP MONKEY
 

Mark Schieferstein was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1973 and studied at the University at Saint Francis. After twenty five years in Indiana, he relocated to Asheville, North Carolina. Since then he has worked as a painter, a picture framer, a canvas builder /stretcher and his passion du jour, a metal sculptor.

Mark is devoted minimalist and his modernist tastes are reflected in everything that he makes, paints and builds. Ineluctably drawn to indestructible steel objects, he combs scrap yards for both inspiration and raw material in piles of industrial cast-offs.
