Like much of the natural world, the colorful and wonderful patterns of marine life lends itself incredibly well to artistic production. MAD Fabrication is a metal shop out of Albuquerque which has been inspired by many of our favorite reef animals to create wonderful and creative steel cutouts of familiar critters.
We’ve seen steel cutouts used in reef inspired art before but where MAD Fabrications’ pieces stand out is with the bold and brilliant ways these pieces are colored. Your significant other might think that brushed metal cutout is way to masculine for the living room but make it colored and now it can go in any room of the house . . . so long as it’s the fishroom.
There’s a clownfish, octopus, a very striking blue tang and a very intricate seahorse. The use of layers of different colors really helps to tone down the aggressive feel of raw metal and the best part is that none of these pieces of ART cost more than a hundred bucks! These reef inspired metal cutouts and many more are available on MAD Fabrications’ Etsy store and we’re pretty sure they’re up for custom pieces and specific requests.
