It is unmistakable that his sculptures are made out of familiar materials, scrapped parts from automobiles can be spotted in his fulgently colored, positively fetching pieces of art.

His artisic focus is not limited to sculpting, John Chamberlain is also an acclaimed photographer.  The subjects in his photographs are bent, blurred, stretched, reflected and flipped to create beautiful, mysterious images.  To make the image even more obscure this photographer rarely puts a name to his work which allows the admirer to create their own idea of the photos subject.
