Ask Me About Little Man-Brandon McCullar
Ask Me About Little Man is inspired by Brandon's childhood. Ever curious, Brandon asked his grandfather how the light in the refridgerator turned on, grandfather told him that there was a little man who did it. Little Man became the explanation for many things over the years, and when Brandon was living overseas, he says that he saw Little Man one day on top of a light pole. This sculpture is approximately 34" wide x 21" tall x 8.5" deep.
Brandon was born in Tuscaloosa and studied Art at Montevallo, the University of Alabama, Complutense University, Madrid and the John Campbell Folk School for Black Smithing. He’s shown in galleries in Alabama, Atlanta, Savannah, Paraguay, North Carolina, Madrid and Paris. He lived his early life traveling throughout Europe, Asia, and South America while studying. During his career as an artist, Brandon has taught art to adults and children. He is currently a Kentuck Studio Artist. Brandon says he’s always been an artist—he could draw before he could write, and he was introduced to metal during summers with his grandparents. His grandfather had a shop that Brandon was allowed to create in when he was younger, but it didn’t occur to Brandon that he was creating sculptures until college.
I feel that as children our imaginations are limitless. We tend to lose this gift as we age. I want to use sculpture to share what I dreamed that I could create as a boy. I let the metal lead me as I shape it, and that’s when the magic happens.”-Brandon McCullar
