About

Join me in the vision of creating this 20 FOOT, monumental, modern day trojan horse Sculpture! 

Malen is one of the first green artists, for over 17 years he has made it his mission to recycle the world, one sculpture at a time, his talent to transform old metals into gallery quality sculptures is  awe inspiring.  

Few people have the creative vision to see what discarded items can become. Yet Pierson skillfully practices the art of fusion – weaving rare and abandoned metals, tools, and recycled materials into highly desirable art forms.

Malen began his artistic journey as a child, drawing and painting.  During his college years, he became very good at painting and photography, but found his true passion in sculpture.  

In the early 90's he began using recycled metals to create small home and garden pieces, through the years he has mastered sculpture, and creates breath-taking life size horses, moose,  buffalo, herons, and fish to name a few. 

His art keeps evolving, and his new vision is to create this monumental, unprecedented 20 foot Trojan horse. The sculpture will be a fantastic  three dimensional, larger than life statue,unlike nothing ever seen before!    After completion of the sculpture, it will be displayed in several national art competitions. The excitement of his new idea, keeps him up at night, drawing endless sketches of the horse, it truly will be a masterpiece. 

The budget for the Trojan Horse includes:

Metals and materials

equipment and forklift rental

labor

permit and transportation fees of a 20 FOOT HORSE! 

Installation 

drawing of 3D horse

Malen's love for people, and for the arts is transparent in his sculpture, and his success.  "He is so grateful to do what he loves, and be a full time artist" Malen gives back to several charities and donates time to teaching art and promoting it.  Malen feels blessed to share his vision with the world, a true innovator, his forever transforming art has won awards nation wide. 

With your help, the dream of the Trojan Horse can become a reality!
