About This One of a Kind Wall Décor Art
Each of these “wall tiles” are completely unique. My intention is to have a large collection of artwork that can be product samples for clients that wish to install a number of these as either a grouping on a wall or as contiguous surrounds for doorways, closets, fireplaces and more. This piece includes great textures with lots of rust, aqua blue acrylics with irregular chunks of blue glass with dichroic glass as accents.
Lightweight and easy to hang; a recessed hanger is included on back that allows for a totally flush mounting on your wall.
How I Make Wall Décor Art
I use recycled polystyrene (also known as Expanded Polystyrene or EPS) as the foundation for my sculptures. There are wonderful environmental benefits (less plastic in the landfills) and it is an incredible flexible media. Once I figure out the basic design for a series of pieces, I prep a flat base for the Rust Blocks, canvas for the 3D Paintings or a heavier weighted base and metal armature for the 3D sculptures. The major construction is adding large and small chunks of EPS to these bases and shaping them with a hot knife, a torch or a heat gun. Then I use several different materials, including cement, acrylics, sand, rocks and others to produce an intriguing texture.
The finishing includes a variety of metal patinas, acrylic paint, iron and copper (the latter two of which are oxidized). The entire sculpture is then coated with a polyurethane that seals in the final colors and protects it from fading. More information and videos of my process can be found here on my website.
In refer to my art by many names: upcycled art, mixed media sculpture, 3d wall art, 3D sculpture, rusty art, wall sculpture, abstract wall sculpture, abstract wall décor, repurposed art, textured artwork, wall décor art, eclectic art, contemporary sculpture or polystyrene art (pick whichever ones YOU like!).
One thing it is for sure is unique. There is nothing else like it (that I have found) in the world. Thank you so much for your interest in owning a piece of something special.
