Hand Crafted Wood sign made using certified wood from sustainable tree farms. Designs are all my originals inspired by the iconic New York City subway signs design style.
I Make them in Williamsburg Brooklyn, NY ( I take appointments by private message if you are interested in visiting the studio ) and their size is 4 inches wide by 15 inches long with a thickness of 1/2 inch.
I use decoupage techniques to transfer the image of my designs onto the wood. Once the transfer is dry I add a thin layer of clear varnish to give a bit of a shine and protect the image on the piece. Once dry I sand the borders of the wood to give the round corners and the wood-finished borders.
All pieces include Sawtooth picture frame hangers installed in the back of the pieces as shown in the photos for people to be able to easily hang it on their walls if wanted, they also come signed and dated by the artist ( me!! ).
My name is Nicolas Gabot and I am the owner of the Brooklyn Art Factory a small decoration business without any real location more than the studio in the basement of my house and the markets, pop-ups, and craft fairs that I have been doing selling my art for the last 6 years. With a background in photography and design, I try creating a small business that tries to bring a sense of belonging to all those people that thought that nobody thinks of their neighborhood. By making signs or taking photos that i will make into wooden pieces I try to represent every single neighborhood of NY even the ones people think no one is going to know. Every neighborhood gets to be represented.
