It is not so difficult to point out the metal art in Brisbane. There are a lot of metal art around you. They do not just add to the aesthetic value of a place, they are considered landmarks, thus letting people know the history of a place. They have a lot of metal art that is placed around the world. One would just have to open their eyes to see them.
From home to the office, there are a lot of small sometimes big metal art design pieces that one can see but does not bother to appreciate it unless you have those unique eyes to see art everywhere.
Contemporary art is art is art that is produced in the contemporary times like in the lifetime of the artist. Contemporary and modern are synonyms in the dictionary and this is why there are still complications on the division between contemporary and modern design. The materials that are used vary from one material to another. But in the list of materials, metal is one of them. This is why contemporary art includes metal art design as one of them. It must be considered that when an artist makes arts, they are making contemporary art because they are making it in their lifetime. When it goes to the next generation they call it differently. Appreciating art is not as easy as just seeing it. One must feel the artist feeling when they were doing it so that it can be called art. Many people do not understand how to appreciate art but there are people who would want to know the story of why and how it was made and everything will be worth it.
Blacksmith in modern times
The production of metal art is like doing the job of a blacksmith. A blacksmith in older time is the one who forge the metal into something else by putting it on fire and hammering it until it has the perfect shape and design that they want. They can make swords, gates and sculptures. The work depends on what the people would want to have. The only difference of the old day’s blacksmith and the modern blacksmith is that in older days it will take several months before something is finished because it is all done by hand. No machine that would helps them in cutting, bending and shaping the piece. That is why it is a good thing that now there are actually factories that can be used to make such big things in such short time.
