Cocaine & Abel was inspired by a scene of Fury Road, the Australian post-apocalyptic film. This was the fourth building where Barefooted Welder found himself in the exciting road of “learning while doing”.

His dream is to die with honor, shiny and chrome, like an exploding machine. This unique piece of metal art sculpture trashes out power chords on his twin-necked guitar with a flamethrower. “She’s light.”

It means achievement, like surfacing when the world is all churned up, an unholy mess… you fall forward with the courage of re-creating a creature to the maximum representation.
