Stephen Chun Wall Sculpture Brutalist


Out of stock

Stephen Chun Brutalist Wall Sculpture. Decorative wall sculpture from the 1970s. The ‘work is by artist and creator Stephen Chun. The work is mounted on a metal panel where his artwork is later applied. The sculpture is made of different metals, such as bronze, brass, and copper, which are then applied to the wall with a brush. The technique after all is brutalist: each individual object is made by hand and not finished permanently.
Each work is unique but clearly recognizable by its distinctive style and method. This makes his works, usually unsigned, easily identifiable and collectible. The copper rosette and side pens, details found in his other works, stand out very clearly.
Chun in fact studied at the Taipei School of Art, graduating in the late 1960s. He was very interested in metalworking. Moving to his native Hong Kong, he began producing a series of brutalist sculptural works in the early 1970s.
He worked with stainless steel, copper and brass, bending and treating them with various tools, flashlights, drills, punches and etching solutions, before shaping them on plywood forms and creating assemblages.
Chun’s work is only now getting the recognition and appreciation it deserves as part of the Brutalist architectural and decorative movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. His work is similar to that of Paul Evans. Admirers of Brutalism and homeowners in the 1970s are avid collectors of his work.
His works were highly prized by Australian tourists to Hong Kong in the 1970s and also by U.S. mainland visitors to Hawaii. Australia, Taiwan and the United States have thus emerged as the key markets where his work has recently been appreciated.
