About the Artist

Metal Artist Cole Talbot draws upon the great outdoors to inspire his unique, one of a kind, custom creations.
Cole has always been a “Dare to be Different” kind of guy. At 16 yrs. old he began etching out his own path by fusing together his love of nature and welding, creating his first distinctive piece now entitled “The beginning".

Growing up in a rural area Cole always chose time along the creek bank and hiking in the woods over video games and being indoors. A passion for nature continues to kindle his creativity spending his free time kayaking, camping, rock climbing or simply driving the country side to see where the dirt roads take him.

Through years of formal training Cole developed his skilled welding expertise. His self-taught artistic abilities are fueled by his curious mind and adventurous spirit.

This young artist is quickly making a name for himself in the art world, with his pieces being sold throughout Canada and internationally.

At 25 years of age Cole Talbot, after working 4 years as a full time artist, Cole opened his first official Art Gallery. The Oak Gallery is a something Cole holds dear to his heart, as It has been a dream of his for years. The gallery provides the opportunity for artists to network and connect with each other as well confirming Coles commitment and dedication to the art world.
