about the artist

Time to get the rocket ready 🚀 •_•_Post

Inspired by her South African heritage, Gubby started drawing animals and tribal patterns when she was only 4 years old. Throughout her life, her art evolved into more complex surreal illustrations reminiscent of Salvador Dali and Dr. Seuss. In college, she discovered her love of metals and welding. Whilst still drawing and printmaking, her larger than life sculptures have taken her work to new dimensions. After graduating, Gubby traveled around the U.S. searching for a new place for inspiration. After dabbling in the Venice Beach street art scene, Gubby currently resides in Joshua Tree, where she creates her steel sculptures, jewelry, and paintings.

about the work

Gubby Beck is a welder, and bends her steel without using any heat.

 Her work ranges in size from large scale installations to home decor and miniatures. Gubby’s sculptures vary from illustrative landscapes,

to organic abstract forms, to whimsical surrealscapes.

 

All sculptures are mainly left as raw steel- overtime it will rust. 

If placed outdoors- pieces will rust quicker. Embrace the natural rust!

Or place indoors for a lasting raw steel- will slowly age with rust over decades.  

If you want to prevent rust all together - pieces can be sprayed with a clear coat. 

All Jewelry is powder coated which is durable and will also prevent rust.
