Medium: Metalworks

Booth #: GN4

David Vigo is an award winning artist that sells his work in fine art shows across the country. As the sole creator of his artwork, each piece will start from cut sheet metal, a steel bar or found object. He uses various techniques to texture the metal which include acid wash, grinding, natural rusting or applying gesso. Sometimes the metal is heat treated, washed in acid, or wire wheeled. Other times, the pieces are an assemblage of various metals or found objects. David then applies enamel paint, acrylic or oil paint over the textured metal, or will experiment with different combinations. Most pieces have several layers of paint in order to achieve a desired look.
