Artspace Warehouse (Los Angeles)
Inspired by dance and weightlessness, Granville Beals' industrial metal sculptures use raw scrap and metals which he manipulates to defy the expectation of the medium. Beals is passionate about re-purposing industrial scrap to create his art – which he views as a unique form of recycling. The process of re-purposing and manipulating materials that might otherwise be destined for the foundry presents unique challenges that spark his creative impulses.
This balanced, industrial sculpture is 75 inches high by 37 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Beals used powder coated steal as the medium for this artwork. The date and artist's signature are located on the sculpture's base. This sculpture can be displayed easily on any flat surface, both indoor and outdoor. If outdoors, artwork may develop a natural patina over time. Free local Los Angeles delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and International shipping available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.
Granville Beals was born and raised in Glens Falls, New York. As a teenager he moved to New York City where he received a Ford Foundation Scholarship to study and train at New York City Ballet’s School of American Ballet. The choreography of lines and the dynamics of negative space are elements that inform Beals’ work.
“Metal embodies fascinating contradictions. Within its rigid and dense cold mass lives a warmth and a sensuality waiting to be revealed. The coarse, loud and often brutal process of working with metal combined with the fiery violence of the weld induces a state of surprising tranquility. I often sketch out my ideas for new pieces and other times simply wait patiently and listen for the material to give me instructions.”
Beals’ work is held in both private and public collections. His public sculptures can be found in California, New York, and Internationally.

Abstract sculpture artist Granville Beals was born and raised in Glens Falls, New York. Inspired by dance and weightlessness, Granville Beals' modern industrial metal sculptures are primarily about relationships. The choreography of lines and the dynamics of negative space are elements that inform Beals’ work.
Concerned with form and abstraction, he does not merely manipulate metals to defy the expectation of the medium forms, but explores the relationship between the human figure and the landscape, color and texture, and most importantly between people at an individual and social level. He established innovative ways to push the boundaries of his technique, creating modern abstract geometric designs inspired by contemporary art and architecture as well as organic forms expressing the unique vision for humanity in a modern world.
