Industrial Beauty

Art pertaining to industrial buildings is often time over looked. Normally when you see things like power plants with smoke rolling out of the stacks you wouldn’t think to make an art piece out of it, but when its laid down on canvas it somehow becomes a thing of beauty.

After gazing over a waterfront you see an industrial factory as the centerpiece in this painting. The water looks as if it’s moving towards you.

This scene can be seen in thousands of towns across the world and is good representation of industrial areas.
Once again this piece of art here is another good representation of an industrial area.

This piece is of a steel mill with a lot of activity going on. Steel mills were an important part of the industrial revolution that went on in America.
