Adhesive vinyl on a violin. Commissioned piece for a Father’s Day present. The childhood violin. They mentioned Art Deco and a connection to nyc, so I chose the Chrysler Building.
I designed the piece on Adobe Illustrator, cut vinyl with vinyl plotter, and pieced it together. I had to be very gentle with it. I’m used to working with metal so it was very different. Frustrating at times, meditative at others. The family was very happy with how it turned out. I am as well.
This piece is featured in my nfts from the Story Series! Pieces available on Rarible:
I included it in the piece IDGAF because sometimes I’m building the tallest building in the world. Just to see if I can. To me it represents uniqueness and competition. I find it interesting that the Chrysler Building was built on the cusp of the Great Depression & represents the machine age of the 1920s. It just has this energy of IDGAF, I’m building the tallest building. And not just the tallest but one of the most unique as well.
