When designing a home everybody has a theme set up in their minds. Some want it to be vintage and ethnic and rusty, while some what it to be a home from the future. If you belong to the second category, you obviously need décor that suits that kind of style of decoration.
Metal art works are comparable to modern art in painting. They can be mindboggling or sometimes elementarily simple. The choice are plenty and equally difficult to actually choose from.
Metal art starts with anything made of metal. Sheets of steel from the junk, screws, nuts, bolts, auto parts, copper strips and wires, etc are art some of the famous raw materials for creating great arts.
Just like stone and marble sculptures, metal too can be turned into metal art sculptures by fusing and welding different metal to create a character sculpture. You can take thin metal strips or wires and make a wire sculpture or take a huge metal sheet and cut out a wall hanging from it.
Some of the art work made out of metal that are high sellers are bugs. Metal ant with legs of broken needle, body slotted spoons, eyes of bolts and antennae out of wires make a fun whimsical metal sculpture. Similarly flies can be made out of forks, wires, welded wings, springs and spoons.
Another sorted after sculpture is of garden creatures such as domesticated animals, birds, boats, etc.
Types of metal works
There are pure metal art which uses aluminum and steel. Sheets of these are used in making wall sculptures with imposing patterns. The light sheen creates a 3D effect on these metal works. Best part is you can create a mood controlled colour variance with tiny bulbs attached particular angles to create the 3D.
Any piece of modern metal art can be converted to colour. They can be monochromatic or multi coloured depending on what the customer desires. Coloured metal wall arts are the latest addition and very stylish. You don’t have to bother with colour bulbs and lighting even.
Heat tinted colours are essentially metal treated with high temperature heat and fused. This creates a collage of metals with various degrees of black, metallic and red colours. Steel, copper and aluminum are used to create the heat kissed effect.
Abstract wall art require crazy components, colours, metal cutting techniques and high level of creativity. Wall arts are 2D, while sculptures are more 3 dimensional. In wall art, sheets of aluminum and steel are cut and blazed and brushed and done what not, to bring life to a lifeless piece of metal. In sculpturing, junk is collaborated to bring life in the form of the sculpture.
