Steel doesn’t have to be limited to the construction and manufacturing industries – you can create fantastic steel sheet art that lasts lifetimes!
For countless years, steel has been a big player in the creative arts. Everything from architecture, to sculpting and jewellery… steel sheet art has found a home in the art world as a brilliant medium.
Artists who work with steel find that it is versatile, durable, recyclable, and can be as malleable as any other metal medium. And let’s not forget to mention that steel sheet is easy to source from Melsteel.
We could keep talking about the magic of steel sheet art, but think it’s best to show you in beautiful images we found from around the globe!
Architecture is functional artwork at its finest – so this is probably one of the most common areas you’ll find steel sheet art.
A perfect example is the Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis, USA. The angles, curves, light play and industrial grandeur of the museum’s exterior are striking and unforgettable!
Not all buildings are created entirely out of steel – many more have smaller element of steel sheet art as an aesthetic detail. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, thanks to steel’s amazing versatility. And being so hard-wearing, it can stand the test of time and weather!
