The sculptor is Alan Tobias-Williams, who trained at the School of Visual Arts and New York University before seeking inspiration from North Africa.

He creates his works of art by cutting, welding and painting steel, then drawing through the paint with an angle grinder.

Hamish MacGillivray, from Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, said: “His main subject is The Power Within.

“This is clearly displayed in his treatment of bulls, horses, figures, birds and unusual abstractions.

“The themes you will see fuse joy, sadness, whimsy and anger.”

The display, entitled Thunder and Tempest, will be held until April 23.
