Copper Wall Art | Elegant Metal Artwork


Outdoor Clear-Coat Available to Eliminate Patina

Copper Wall ArtThe two metals that Nicholas Yust uses most frequently are aluminum and copper. Copper is a rich and beautiful material, and (to the trained hand) is a softer and more delicate metal.

Although artists love to use it for its gorgeous, elegant appeal, copper is inherently more expensive and temperamental than aluminum and steel, and the precautions that must be taken make it even more costly to create artwork from. Also, unless you want your wall panel to end up as green as the Statue of Liberty, it is going to require a serious clear-coat to eliminate oxidization and patina. No offense to Lady Liberty, but if you intend to enjoy the brilliant golden blonde hues and wish to plan the color palette of your space accordingly, you will want to maintain the original, natural metal coloring for as long as possible.

Brilliantly Rich Copper: Upscale Design Element

Few 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 panels with dark back panels (creating the border/trim around the edges.) The large, smooth wave pattern gives the copper a sense of liquidity - flowing across the surface of the artwork as the material almost seems to fold over in molten motion. An effective artist can convert your home or office into a space fit for Greek Gods and Goddesses...

    Fire Lake v2 by Nicholas Yust is a testament to Nicholas' ability to create elegant, serene masterpieces using intense industrial equipment. The silver front panel of this dual-layered design is manually cut using a handheld plasma cutter to literally melt away the metal in the shape of a tree. The adhered back panel is a gently ground and sanded copper panel, which then shows through the void of the cuts in beautiful contrast to the silver aluminum.

              Nicholas originally created 'Flexure' as a spinoff of his popular 'Tantalum' design. Both share a common starburst element, however 'Flexure' takes a wavy, almost distorted angle. The outward-reaching lines begin at an impossibly precise focal point in the center of the copper panel, and ripple their way outward in such broad waves that it seems to slow down the inherently active design of the starburst pattern.This combination of energy and ease seem to work beautifully together, creating a...

                              Nicholas recently came up with the concept for "The Fire Within" after some uniquely torn paper on a contrasting background caught his eye.

There are three different grind patterns the artist uses in this work. The center piece has an almost dotted appearance. The next two have a series of short lines, which resemble a wheat field. The outer panels have smooth, vertical lines. All the grind patterns compliment each other in their vertical movement. This, along with the warm, rich tone of the copper, make...

A number of different vertical grind patterns are exercised by the artist, which compliment the feel of the piece, and give the impression of water cascading down the panels. The panels vary in size, adding to the interest in this piece. This piece will add a warm beauty to your space.

                                                                                As you can see, Nicholas Yust loves using copper in his work. However as I mentioned, it is a much more temperamental material than aluminum, so the panels require special handling and treatment. 'Patina' is the blue/green colored result of aged or untreated metal. To prevent that, Nicholas treats all of his modern copper artwork with several layers of a protective automotive clear coat that eliminates the 'patina' effect and protects the integrity and design of the elegant masterpiece from the corrosive oils of finger prints, and of course all of the potential damage from outdoor exposure.

                                                                                The protective clear coat on the copper artwork is the same finish that you would see on a high-end automobile (exact finish used on Lexus automobiles, in fact.) Each artistic panel receives anywhere from 2-4 layers, with several days required for application, baking and drying/hardening 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 helps to ensure the life of your copper artwork and protects the rich, artistic designs from the diminishing effects of age.

                                                                                Custom Options, Variations | Request Anything in Copper

This has become one of the artist's signature techniques - it creates some beautiful visual and textural contrast for the mosaic style pieces, and can work as a trim or border for depth and contrast if used as a back-panel. As with all of our metal wall art, the choice of material is completely interchangeable upon request. Simply Contact Us with your customization request and we will respond promptly with a price quote.

                                                                                Please note: We can also do color-matching (or "metal-matching") where the buyer sends us an actual sample of the metal hardware used in the room/office/space (or refers us to the supplier's website) so we can match the color/grade of metal for the artwork to the design and decor of the room. Typically that is not necessary for aluminum or steel, but copper, bronze, or any painted or patina-treated material may have a wide range of hues.

                                                                                Heat-Tinted/Torched Colored | Adds Industrial Element
                                                                                Another design variation of the copper that you can see above in a piece like INFUSION, for example, is called 'heat tinting' or 'torch coloring.' Just as it sounds, that is where Nicholas brings out natural hues of color by super-heating the metal and creating a heat patina. Depending on the heating technique and duration the artist can get a variety of gorgeous colorful designs to emerge from the copper as a natural reaction to the intense heat. One of the great things about this style is that no two sculptures are ever exactly the same, because the metal will react differently (within the same color scheme,) with unique shades and designs every time. Each of these brilliantly colored wall art pieces adds individual character and a bit of a rugged, industrial element to an otherwise elegant piece.

                                                                                Nicholas Yust takes great measures to ensure a flawless surface with resistance to blemishes and patina. In many cases he will apply a clear coat finish (particularly if the copper art will hang outdoors or in an area susceptible to handling and fingerprints.) The clear coat treatment is intended to allow the artwork to retain its original beauty and magnificent presence even in unfavorable conditions.
