Wall art is becoming increasingly popular in India as more people are looking for bespoke artworks for their homes and businesses. Hospitality establishments like hotels, restaurants and cafes are also becoming patrons of modern artworks in their pursuit for finding that unique look and feel that makes them stand out in the crowd. Corporate headquarters are also taking the lead in modish décor, as are public spaces like new airports and railway/metro stations.
Contemporary art is not just about creating an artwork that stays within the bounds of modish designs, but also about reimagining life and material forms, adapting them to create something new. Fossils Unearthed by Indian metal sculptor and light artist Vibhor Sogani is one such marvelous creation. It is a wall art design that depicts a cluster of mollusk-like shelled creatures. Created from shimmering discs of stainless-steel, the feature also interacts with ambient light, creating an interesting vista.
Stainless steel is the material of choice for Vibhor and his signature steel artworks include the Sprouts Art Installation in Delhi and the Joy Public Art in Dubai. Mirror finish stainless-steel as an inviting presence, interacting with its surroundings including lighting, weather, landscape and people in interesting ways due to the material’s lustrous quality.
