Introducing Cole Talbot
"As a 23 year old Metal Artist, Cole Talbot draws upon the great outdoors to inspire his unique, one of a kind, custom creations"
||Recently honoured as Norfolk County's Young Entrepreneur of the Year for 2014, Cole has always been a "Dare to be Different" kind of guy. At 16 years of age, he began etching out his own path by fusing together his love of nature and welding, creating his first distinctive piece entitled "Stand Alone".
Growing up in a rural community, Cole always gravitated to time spent along the creek bank and hiking in the woods over video games and being indoors.
A passion for nature continues to kindle his creativity as he spends his free time kayaking, camping, rock climbing or simply driving the countryside to see where the inviting dirt roads take him!
This young artist is quickly making a name for himself in the art world, with his pieces already being sold throughout Canada and internationally.
|Through four years of formal training Cole developed his skilled welding expertise. His self-taught artistic abilities are fueled by his curious mind and adventurous spirit. Although Cole is fairly new to exhibiting and selling his art formally, his work has been exhibited in several Ontario shows, and galleries included a seasonal exhibit at Whistling Gardens botanical gardens.
