Monochrome Glass Wall Art ‘Brum’ by Adam Hussain
This stunning handmade monochrome glass wall art panel is of the Birmingham (UK) skyline. A photograph taken from the roof of the Custard Factory in Digbeth inspired this abstract design. Using ‘Bullseye’ glass sheets and 1mm glass stringers (rods) in a range of greys and blacks, Adam has created a stunning panel for serious glass-art collection.
Four contemporary fixtures are included, installing the glass 20mm from the wall. This artwork lets transmitted light and shadows onto the wall behind, adding more depth and character to the piece. The shadows changing in different ways as light ebbs and flows throughout the day.
Adam Hussain’s masterpiece is perfect for modern décor and for lovers of monochrome.
Monochrome Glass Wall Art Artist
Adam Hussain designs and makes contemporary glass art from concept to installation for a variety of clients. These include artworks for galleries, corporate and private commissions, public commissions as well as interiors for homes and businesses. A twenty-four panelled glass wall installation at Coventry University in 2018 was a career highlight. This incredible achievement came after a nine-year art residency.
Adam specialises in kiln-form techniques to create one-off artworks, which have a handmade character. His award-winning artworks ‘A Fine Line’ was featured in ‘Vogue’s Contemporary Collection’ for the home. These are geometric patterns and abstract imagery of cityscapes constructed with 1mm glass stringers. The relationship between glass, light and space is a key element of his practice. Using both transparent and opaque glass he experiments with the transmitted and reflective light created by each artwork.
Much of Adam’s work starts from his black and white photography of modern architecture and cityscapes. These research studies inform his glass artwork. The works of modern painters such as Mondrian and Rothko for their use of bold and vivid colours are an inspiration for Adam. A fusion of all these factors results in the final abstract nature of his art.
Adam’s creative business is located in Coventry, where he has his own studio and the Blue Door Gallery. A key member of the local art community, Adam holds gallery events with other local artists and art organisations as well as teaching students. In 2018 and 2019 he was the Craft Council’s Talent Ambassador for the West Midlands.
