Stencil spray paint on 3 sheets of 2mm steel on MDF panel
These pieces are made of 3 sheets of raw steel and are distressed and rough. These imperfections are part of the artwork and I think they make them beautiful. The artwork will age and that patina will give it more character.


 It will get old and beautiful, just like you.
