Colorful Contemporary Metal Sculptures


Perhaps the most impressive feature of Nicholas's contemporary metal sculptures is the element of weightlessness that he brings to a presumably heavy medium. The flowing ribbons seem to be in suspended animation as they billow upward toward the sky. Combine that with his uncanny ability to grind, paint and finish metal, and the result is an absolutely gorgeous display.

Nicholas bends and curves the metal ribbons all by hand, giving a natural and organic life to every piece. He is an extremely talented artist and is among the best and most collected contemporary metal sculptors of our day. His sculptures are displayed in numerous galleries, public buildings, private art collections, and contemporary displays all over the world. Nicholas can turn virtually any idea, concept or request into a breath-taking, free-standing sculpture, giving you a masterful contemporary accent for your home, office or gallery.

All metal sculptures from our gallery include a professionally mounted metal or stone sculptural base - the exact bases you see in the photographs may or may not be available at any given time, so please contact us shortly after placing your order if you have a preference on the sculpture base.

Please Note: Size and colors can be customized upon request. Each contemporary sculpture below is suitable for both indoor & outdoor placement, as Nicholas will treat or clear coat the metal as needed.

The lovely pairing of decoratively ground and manually shaped metal ribbons shows a modern, progressive couple with a subtle nod to the differences that bring couples and lovers together. With a natural silver finished ribbon and a gorgeous gold-painted ribbon in brilliant contrast, this interpretive metal sculpture shows a couple that is different yet complimentary in color, and compatible in every way.

The sweeping grind in the metal creates natural highlights and lowlights as light passes through the blue acrylics and reflects off the metallic body. The sculpture body of this elegant masterpiece has a single larger loop near the bottom, followed by tighter twists toward the top. Nicholas has the uncanny ability to create such organic, weightless metal ribbon sculptures as...

The abstract sculptural body is hand-formed into the organic, spiriling shape, exposing both sides to the viewer and offering balanced exposure and aesthetic consisteny from every angle.

With tight folds repeated over and over from top to bottom, this musically-inspired abstract floor sculpture makes a beatiful accent piece for an urban or contemporary space, paticularly for the modern music lover.

The pink abstract sculpture sits atop a silver metal base with a rippling wavy grind pattern for an added artistic element.

Not only is the design, shape, coloring and grind patterns uniquely attractive, but the primary components are literally cut from real jet engine parts. In Nicholas's early days as a contemporary metal artist he was employed by General Electric (GE) as an engineer working on jet engines, and this abstract sculpture is the one and only that he crafted using actual parts from jet aircrafts that he worked on (but not to...

The body features a gentle grind pattern behind the semi-transparent blue acrylics, to accentuate the reflective properties and give this cool-toned sculpture some natural variety in the blues. The tight loops also create natural shading in the inner curls, which makes for a gorgeously elegant sculpture that is captivating from...

Definitely a wonderful complimentary floor sculpture for a modern home or office that would work perfectly in a set, or paired with other similar companion sculptures.

Each features a unique gradient of color, with orange-red, blue-violet, and green-yellow all in turn. The surface behind the colors features a rippled wavy grind pattern, which will capature and reflect ambient light in with colorful motion and life. The strong geometry and balanced layers certainly give this piece structure, but the darting grinds and spectacular color add a playful element as...

The surface of this metal sculpture features a rippling wave of a grind pattern that truly captures the visual dance of a watery surface, which is accentuated even more by the rich blue, turquoise and green color scheme.

The sharp bends and twists are all carefully molded by hand, using nother other than calloused fingers and trained hands. The unique shape of the sculptural body has an almost animal-like quality to it, with the top of the ribbon bending down like the beak or snout of a curious critter.

                                                                                                  Can they really be displayed outdoors..?
                                                                                                  As noted above, all of our contemporary sculptures are suitable for both indoor & outdoor placement. Nicholas treats his painted and/or copper sculptures with several layers of an automotive clear coat to protect from the elements. Any of the standard metal sculptures (aluminum) are non-corrosive and do not oxidize, and therefore do not need the clear coat. If you intend to display the contemporary sculpture outside, please be sure that it is on a level surface and/or anchored properly. For open public gallery displays, be sure to secure the sculptures to the ground - contact us for custom/secure installation options.

                                                                                                  General Info on our Metal Sculptures
                                                                                                  Here are a few helpful tips and some general information about Nicholas Yust's contemporary metal sculptures...

                                                                                                  • Due to the curvy, bending techniques that the artist uses to create his sculptures, the metal strips have a maximum thickness that we can employ. That being the case, we generally cannot go taller than about 6 feet before the weight of the sculpture cannot be supported by the thinner sheets of metal. With larger, sturdy bases we can add another foot or so to that limit. If you need something very large like an outdoor public monument we can certainly accommodate, Nicholas will just use some industrial fabrication processes rather than bending the material by hand.
                                                                                                  • If you intend to display your sculpture outdoors and you live in a windy area or will be mounting it in a highly-trafficked location, please let us know and we can reinforce the base mounting.
                                                                                                  • If you live very close to salt water and will display your sculpture outdoors, please let us know and we will apply extra layers of the protective clear coat to the paint and/or metal. Our contemporary sculptures are commonly displayed at beach-front properties, and are able to withstand the rain, wind, sand and salt air. Unlike many sculptors, Nicholas also has a Masters Degree in Metallurgical Engineering, and his experience with metal has taught him how to create his sculptural art to withstand even some extreme weather.
                                                                                                  • Remember that all of our metal sculptures are completely customizable, so please let us know if you have a special request relating to color, material, shape, finish, design, etc. and we will gladly work with the artist to tweak the design accordingly. Nicholas is never offended by a customization request, so feel free to liberally customize the sculpture to your taste...
