Welcome to Brooklyn Art Factory, where I create handcrafted wood signs using certified wood from sustainable tree farms. Each design is an original inspired by the iconic neighborhoods and landmarks of New York City.
Located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, my studio is open to visitors by appointment.
The signs measure 4 inches wide by 15 inches long with a thickness of 1/2 inch.
To transfer my original designs onto the wood, I use decoupage techniques. Once the image is transferred and dry, I apply a thin layer of clear varnish to give it a glossy finish and protect it from wear and tear. I then sand the borders of the wood to create rounded corners and a polished look.
Each piece includes sawtooth picture frame hangers installed on the back, making them easy to hang on the wall. Every sign is signed and dated by me, the artist.
My name is Nicolas Gabot, and I have been running Brooklyn Art Factory for the past six years. With a background in photography and design, my goal is to create something that brings a sense of belonging to every neighborhood in New York City, even those that people may not know about. I believe that every neighborhood is important.
Thank you for your interest in my work! If you’d like to visit my studio, please feel free to send me a private message to schedule an appointment.
