Behance Inspiration: Art With Lots of Tension

Posted on April 7, 2008 Under Art

Sculptor R. Justin Stewart does amazing things with thread, rope, paint, pvc caps, and lots of tension. One striking piece, entitled Existing Independently, utilized fleece material to create 52 cubes held rigid with ropes to outline the USA. He also constructed an elaborate installation out of three miles of blue thread, lead fishing weights, and some frames. His latest project is an enormous installation Bus Structure 2am-2pm, made out of copper, wood, steel, and lots of blue thread. You can look, but don’t touch! His Behance portfolio gives a sense of just how well he has mastered his art.
