“You can’t fake the natural look of a sign: The weathering, the scratching, the bullet holes. They tell the story of the sign. I think the patina is what makes these pieces so special.”
Building the bridge between fine art and functionality, maker Boris Bally creates pieces fit for both sides of the coin. In his crafted works, Bally turns forged, upcycled, aluminum street signs into lustrous and utilitarian pieces of art. Between his exacting use of wording, color, arrows and shapes, Bally imbues his objects with abstract personality.
