Mike Slobot’s Robot Art – The Mechanobot Project


Back once again – its Mike Slobot with the Mechanobot, and new, one of a kind slobot sculpture.  This commission was created to accompany a found object motorcycle sculpture.

His story:

“The Mechanobot is a brass tacks, no-nonsense slobot that loves nothing more than working on a motorcycle. Long hours holding a wrench bring him pure delight, and he specializes in detailed reconstruction work. Mechanobot carries around his own supply of grease, oil, and gas on his back, with his trusty ‘combo grease gun’ at his side.” 

Stands about 14” tall, found objects, old and new toys, rubber, glass, paint, etc.  Eye, wires, and hand lights glow in the dark.


Why, yes, he does have his very own skull tattoo reminding him of the horrors of war…mikeslobot_mechanobot_tattoo
