About the Artist:


Rusty

The artist Rusty Hagan has lived in Alaska since 1989, and before that he had lived in New Mexico and
other Southwest states. Rusty lives in the country near Fairbanks, Alaska with his wife and 32 sled dogs.  Much of Rusty’s inspiration for his art comes from the outdoors, where he spends much of his free time when not doing his artwork.

Rusty is currently an Ice Road Trucker and has worn man hats in his 64 years. He has been everything from a farrier, logging company owner, welder, construction manager and something he is most proud of is his years as a dog musher. Rusty has ran numerous dog sled races with the highlights of his mushing career being the Yukon Quest Sled dog Race and the Copper Basin 300 Sled dog Race.

Most of his metal sculptures take twenty to thirty hours for average size pieces. The more elaborate, larger pieces can take weeks to get the work perfect. His art is his release and his joy and it shows in every meticulous piece of work. All of his work is hand done by applying different metal onto the sculpture, none are molded, and shaping each item in the piece by either sanding, dremeling, or reheating to shape the art to look like what he is envisioning.

The end results are these beautiful sculptures that have this amazing attention to detail!
