Jimmy Descant, who calls himself a Severe Reconstructivist, says, "I grew up in New Orleans, lived in Colorado for 10 years, and am now on a 2 to 3 year art adventure with my wife, vintage camper, and cats around the South and West! I am a self-taught artist of 22 years, after 15 years in the music business, in my own style of found object assemblage, specializing in what I call 'Western Futurism.' Since 1996 I have scoured the flea markets, thrift stores, and alleys of America, gleaning and using parts from the Golden Age of American manufacturing to disassemble down to the hardware, then upcycle build into my sculptural style and statement of my vision of the West - its Peoples, environment, and social/political conditions."
