Original Photography of the Manhattan Skyline taken in Winter 2015 from Williamsburg, Brooklyn with Frozen East River in it. That I digitally edited to give a nice vintage rustic vibe and transferred by Hand on to Wood coming from certified sustainable tree farms.
Big pieces like this one are connected in the back with wood frames to keep the composition together at all times and making it
very easy to hang on the wall only using nails or velcro tape.
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 24 inches wide by 38 inches long with a thickness of 1 inch. and it weighs around 9 pounds
I use decoupage, and screen printing techniques to transfer the image of my designs onto the wood. Once transfer dries 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.
Pieces come signed and dated on the back.
My name is Nicolas Gabot and I am the owner of the Brooklyn Art Factory a small decoration business without any permanent showcase location.
i have a studio in my house and make markets, pop-ups, and craft fairs to sell 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 and if I haven't made anything about your neighbor, talk to me about It :)
