Artist Scott Bruce

Based north of Boston on Cape Ann, Massachusetts, Scott has been taking risks in the art world for decades. After stints as a sculptor and non-profit artist-space director, he created and rode two collecting crazes -- vintage lunch boxes and cereal boxes -- to international attention in the '80s and '90s.

Scott began picking up aluminum character cake pans at yard sales before Covid without any plan. Playing around with concrete casting during the lockdown and the chance breaking of a Wilma Flintstone mug -- used as a pen holder — resulted in the first ceramic and concrete wall hanging sculpture -- and soon after Pop-Smack was born.
