Copper Artwork: Indoor & Outdoor Modern DesignsNicholas Yust is something of a master of metals. The two mediums he uses most frequently are aluminum and copper. Copper is a rich and beautiful material, and is considered a softer and more delicate metal. Although artists love to use it, it is inherently more expensive than aluminum and steel, and the precautions that must be taken as an artist working with copper make it even more costly to create artwork from. Also, unless you want your wall panel to end up green like the Statue of Liberty, it is going to require a serious clear-coat to eliminate oxidization and patina. No offense to the Statue, but if you intend to enjoy the brilliant coppers and plan the color pallette of your space accordingly, you will want to maintain the original coloring for as long as possible.
Brilliantly Rich Copper: Upscale ArtworkFew options for wall decor can effectively compete with a gorgeously classy, artistically ground copper panel. The example to the right is a pair of companion copper panels with dark back panels (creating the border/trim around the edges.) The wave pattern makes the copper seem liquid - flowing across the surface of the artwork. An effective copper artist can convert your home or office into a space fit for the Greek Gods.

Copper Artwork | Modern Metal Wall Art Designs in CopperCopper Art: Different Metal, Special Artwork Treatment
At ModernAbstractDecor.com, we use copper for much of our modern metal wall art designs. Copper is a much more temperamental material than aluminum, so the copper artwork designs created require special handling and treatment. 'Patina' is the blue/green colored result of aged or untreated copper. Our artist, Nicholas Yust, treats all of his modern copper artwork with several layers of a protective clear coat that eliminates the 'patina' effect and protects the integrity and design of the copper art work from the outdoor elements. The protective clear coat on the copper artwork is the same finish that you would see on a high-end automobile. Each copper panel receives anywhere from 2-4 layers, with several days required for application, baking and drying time per layer. Nicholas takes great measures to ensure a flawless sheen and a smooth glossy finish, without dust particles or imperfections in the coating. This process ensures the life of your copper wall artwork and protects the rich, artistic designs.
Copper Art | Modern Wall Designs, Customizations & VariationsCopper Metal Wall Art: Modern Designs in Copper
Nicholas Yust's copper wall art designs have a number of variations and varieties to choose from. As you can see, much of the artwork in this gallery actually incorporates another metal (typically aluminum) in addition to copper. This has become one of the artist's signature artistic techniques - it creates some texture and color variation for the mosaic style pieces, and can work as a trim or border for depth and contrast if used as a backpanel. As with all of our metal wall art, the choice of metal is completely interchangeable upon request. So if you find a steel or aluminum piece you like but want it in copper instead, just let us know and we will price it out accordingly. The artist is quoted as saying, "If you can imagine it, I can probably build it." This applies to his copper artwork just as well as his aluminum designs.
