Ice Crystals by Nicholas Yust is a stunning hand-crafted and hand-painted metal wall sculpture with a layered, criss-crossing, angular grind pattern etched into the surface of the metal, creating a spectacular dimensional effect that really draws the viewer in. The crisp blue and turquoise hues behind blackened brushstrokes and glossy clear coat come together for a fascinating display, truly creating the 'Wow Factor' conversation piece on your wall. A holographic effect is created when light passes through the layers of color and reflects off of the curving grooves of the grind pattern. This piece makes a gorgeous urban contemporary artwork with a bold statement, incorporating a myriad of hand-mixed colors with a black acrylic vignette, thinner and reactive treatments, industrial style finishing techniques and a glossy clear coat.
Ice Crystals is in Nicholas's Black Label collection, which features very organic designs with heat and checmical reacted finishes. The emerging expressionistic designs and interacting colors are impossible to fully control and replicate, meaning every piece is an entirely unique, gallery-quality original. Custom commissions with generally similar colors and patterns can be created upon request.
