Following his close friend’s life-changing injuries—caused by the devastating impact of war— McCrow made a personal commitment to use the commercial side of his art to stem the flow of surplus and illicit weapons by destroying 1,000,000 guns.

McCrow pioneered the concept of the art of disarmament: using weapons recovered from war torn areas of the world, decommissioning them and giving them a new life as unique pieces of art. Through the creative process, McCrow tells the human stories that share their history with each weapon, along with new questions about morality, endeavour and ultimately, the true cost of conflict.
This is art with purpose.
