ecades in the making. A lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone into the creation of Affee’s Art Design. Amazing, captivating, thrilling and “simply out-of-this-world” are some of the words people are using when describing pieces from Affee’s Art Design.
In an industry where artists are educated through design school or use design applications and computers to hone their craft, Affee is self-taught.
Within our world of ever changing technology, the skill of “true” craftsmanship is often lost. Thankfully Affee’s deep rooted sense of artistry in custom-made intricate designs has never changed and will never be duplicated.
Whether it’s a design within his collection or an exclusive piece that you would like commissioned, you can rest assured that only the highest quality products are used from start to finish.
This designers ingenuity in the areas of glass, acrylic, stainless steel, titanium, abstract art, oil paintings, sculptures, and the newly innovative “Blue Copper Series” and “Onyx Series” are uniquely created for those with a discerning eye and deep appreciation for artistic value.
Affee’s long standing career in fabrication, construction and music are reflected in each note of these concept-to-reality designs. He began creating small works of art as a boy and built on that foundation in the 1970’s. However a few obstacles of life deterred him from pursuing his passion full-time.
Nevertheless Affee has always held on to the spark of life, knowing that in due season the fruits of his labor would flourish.
With a profound and renewed dedication to the arts, Affee and his family of four are thrilled that the public is able to take part in a vision come true through the journey forward of Affee’s Art Designs.
