Industrial Loft - Wall Sculptures

When artists and creative types first began colonizing old industrial neighborhoods and turning old factories and warehouses into livable spaces for residing and creating, the first thing they would often did was paint the walls white. Given the large, airy spaces they occupied –entire floors sometimes – it was essential to create a ‘blank canvas’ and a sense of unity, which was often accomplished by making the space a giant white box. From this starting point, the Industrial Loft style would take shape. Inevitably, personal collections of art, or indeed pieces of art made by the residents themselves, would find their way onto these freshly painted walls. Sculptural objects with a strong storage or other utilitarian purpose soon followed, often created from found objects like machine parts or re-bar which were transformed into wall sculptures whose legacy lives on today.
