                                    You can almost define a person by the music they listen to. Reading a person's playlist is almost an open book to the soul. Music can affect your mood, brighten your day, or define your broken heart. Typically your choice of music leaks out into your style. And that is why you are almost certain to find, behind bright platinum or daring red, the heart of a rockstar. You want your style to define you, just the way your music does. And that is why "Mola" is the piece for you.

The colors swirl together, and truly create a near perfect essence of real-life magma. You can almost see the panels bubbling in anticipation of erupting into lakes of lava upon the earth’s surface.

                                              A beautiful, simple mosaic piece by Nicholas Yust. This piece is composed of four, pure metal panels, the center three which have been placed into a mosaic square. Each piece repeats the same wavy grind pattern, but all moving in different directions, which adds to the distinction of the separate panels. This clean, achromatic piece would be the perfect addition to your metal wall art collection.

The use of both copper and aluminum conveys a wonderful sense of deep passion. A layer of pewter patina is laid over the top of the aluminum sheet and textured by hand, giving the top layer of this sculpture an incredible matte finish. A large section of the aluminum is cut away (appearing to be torn away) revealing a burst...

The strips include decoratively ground aluminum, ground and transparent-painted aluminum, and opaque-painted aluminum. The result is a striking combination of colors and textures, making an eye-catching conversation piece and a perfect contemporary accent with a splash of vibrant colors.

The grind pattern on the frame contrasts nicely with the pattern on the circles. The use of primary colors and the simple, repeating pattern of the circles give a very modern, geometric feel to this bright piece.

The panels exhibit separate grind patterns, which add depth to this achromatic piece. A single, circular cut out adds a very visually interesting element to this piece. The geometric feel will lend itself well to a modern decor.

                                                          This achromatic, multi paneled piece has a very modern, geometric appeal. Each panel has a unique finish. One panel boasts a smooth, wavy grind pattern, which contrasts beautifully with a separate panel consisting of straight lines crisscrossing over the panel. A single, circular cut out draws in the eye from the otherwise very linear piece. A gorgeous addition for your modern space.

A large sheet of metal has been overlaid with interlocking sheets of metal, which have been cut in a dramatic wave that plays across the center of the piece. A brushed grind pattern give texture to the piece. The true impact lies in the trio of circles in bright hues of blue, green and purple. A wavy grind pattern give the circles an almost electric feel. This piece will give a fantastic, modern gallery...

                                                              Stars begin as clouds made up of tiny particles of gas and dust. Over time, gravity compresses the atoms inside these gas clouds and causes a fusion reaction. The pressure from the gravity causes the gasses to push back with equal amounts of pressure, and eventually jets of gas erupt from the prostar, blasting the remaining gas and dust away and leaving a pure star. ‘Birth of a Star’ depicts the exact moment, just before a beautiful new star is visible. As you study the colors...

It is comprised of multiple strips of heavily ground metal in varying lengths and widths. The metal strips are fused together fashion that seems to be a cross between a bow-tie and a starburst. On the larger, horizontal center-strip there are various circles and rings of metal mounted to add character and shape variation. Ameba is a unique piece that also works well with abstract decorators looking for a centerpiece over a...

I believe the name alone speaks volumes and describes the piece perfectly. It features a heavily ground rectangular base with various triangular shapes scattered across the top, as though a layer of ice was freshly shattered. Shifting Ice is a very loud, emotional piece and fits perfectly with rooms that need that kind of expression through the artwork. (See also Ice...

This piece features about a dozen layers of metal expertly-arranged in an interesting abstract structure that seems to tell the tale of the artist's background in metallurgical engineering. Nicholas describes this type of metal artwork as a 'multidimensional copper wall sculpture' - perhaps a bit of a mouthful, but it is clear that the piece is certainly more sculptural in nature than the...

                                                                                                  Abstract Classification vs Modern/Contemporary Classification
                                                                                                  Although most the metal wall art in our gallery is not figurative (with some exceptions) and the theme could be considered abstract, Nicholas's general style is considered more modern, contemporary or industrial first. However, this collection in particular sets itself apart with truly exciting, daring, and unequivocally abstract designs. They tend to be more sculptural in structure, and require an expressionist attitude from the buyer. You will find that this work really brings out the personality of both the sculptor as well as the buyer. Bold colors, unpredictable sculptural elements, funky dimensions, unique artistic components, and irregular cuts come together to make spectacular abstract metal wall art and wall sculptures.

                                                                                                  Understanding Nicholas Yust's Abstract Artwork
                                                                                                  Why Buy Art from Modern Abstract Decor?It is very difficult to assign a definition to abstract artwork. By its very nature, abstract art is unique and unpredictable, defying labels and common description. The term 'abstract' suggests that the artwork breaks the mold and is different from the norm. Rather than the more clean, clear-cut and simple 'modern' style, abstract artwork is typically much louder. It must be very creative and expressionistic. An abstract sculptor must be imaginative, bold and daring. Here are a few consistent components with most of Nicholas Yust's abstract artwork:

                                                                                                  Abstract Color Schemes
                                                                                                  Bright, vibrant colors and unexpected color combinations are often used in abstracts. Some designs might incorporate scrap metal or oxidized metal to create their unique abstract flair, while others may have crisp painted colors with a sleek, reflective finish. Others still may incorporate dip-painting, torched or heat-tinting, palette knife painting, and even plasma-cutting process. All of these techniques give the wall sculpture a lot of character and natural beauty, and contribute toward the 'abstract' classification.

                                                                                                  Abstract Grind Patterns
                                                                                                  Another key component of this collection that truly separates our artwork from that of other artists is the signature grind patterns. Nicholas Yust has developed and patented numerous metal grinding techniques and artistic abstract patterns that he etches into to the surface of the art to create the designs and textures that you see. It is important to note that Nicholas does not use mass production, machinery or apprentices to create his work, so every wall sculpture that you buy from us has the artist's personal touch.

                                                                                                  Abstract Components & Materials 
                                                                                                  Another aspect of this collection that makes the artwork more abstract is the choice of material and components. You will notice that many of the pieces use metal segments that go beyond the standard rectangular sheet metal used for most of our other artwork. You will find plasma cut edges, sliced tubes, metal ribbons, stainless steel grates, metal gears, wire strands, etc. Many with unpredictable edges, sharp angles, and various layers. 

                                                                                                  These cuts and combinations are difficult to make, but through Nicholas's carefully trained eye and well-earned experience they come together to create your beautiful, unique, one of a kind, handmade, abstract metal art or sculpture.
