Tom Shelton AKA What the Folk Art is a self-taught artist who works mainly with found objects.
Thomas Shelton has created countless creatures which look to have clawed their way out from a scrap heap deep inside the imagination of H.P. Lovecraft.
Tom Shelton's recycled art is very timely, as a consumer culture we create so much packaging waste. As well as creating interesting art, Shelton's art is a reminder of the need to think more about what we throw away.
Shelton recognises that even when he has a plan for an piece they develop a life, features and character of their own.
