Bobbi Mastrangelo’s  Welcome

This website was designed especially fo you to consider my art for EXHIBITION and  ACQUISITION. 

My art theme is based on manhole covers, water covers, grates and drains, called “Grate Works of Art.” This art has historical significance, because it is a visual documentation of our Urban Landscapes. 

Every year manhole covers are replaced, often with bland patterns stamped as foreign imports. Due to environmental regulations, many USA Foundaries could not compete with foreign imports. Some of my sculptures and prints have recorded the original streetscapes.

My collective artworks venerate the multitude of Utility Covers adorning our City Streets. These covers protect a host of valuable resources and are basically overlooked by the common man. They  are not overlooked by the Municipal workers who must maintain them.  So my art, in Essence, venerates the Cover Casretakers.

 Collecting and exhibiting the ”Grate Works of Art” attracts a whole new viewing audience:including  the “Cover Catakers.”

Just view my gallery to see exhibition possibilities http://bobbimastrangelo.dev4.mvisolutions.com/grate-works-gallery/

There are additional works available in all sizes from prints on hand made paper to miniature rotating sculptures. A studio visit can easily be arranged.  (Plus I am not too far from Disney World).

WEBSITE WELCOME to ART LOVERS

DEAR ART LOVERS,

WELCOME TO THIS UNIQUE WEBSITE FEATURING MANHOLE ART

Why Manhole Covers? (instead of portraits or landscapes?)

The question most people ask is “Why did you ever pick such a ridiculous theme?”  Some people even shake their heads when they think about the mundane iron covers we all walk over.

Well, it all began when I was a Mom going back to college to study art. I experimented in every style and medium possible.

Master Printer, Dan Welden advised me to settle on one style or medium.  The distinguished professor of Art History,  Lawrence Alloway looked at my little album of art creations and said,  “You have a penchant for circles!”

Here are some of Mastrangelo’s Early Works:

 

 

 

 

 

What a conundrum?

“! how could  I develop a style or theme using circles”? I wondered.   

Eureka! One day I discovered two pages containing manhole cover photographs!  Wow!  “What a perfect theme! for me ” That was 1979 and I am still doing “Grate Works!”

Looking at the Gallery, you will note that some of the images are squeezed or compressed.  Just click on the art image and it will revert to the correct proportions.  To return to the Gallery, click on the X in the upper left corner.

I welcome your support and comments. I would love to know your favorites of my art. List the titles and tell why you like them.
