Amaral Custom Fabrications specializes in a broad spectrum of fabrication needs. Although our history stems from marine fabrication and painting, one area of our business we have a extensive background in is art restoration. ACF has had the unique opportunity to restore priceless works of art created by well-known artists from around the world such as Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenberg, Alexander Calder, and Niki De Saint Phalle.
Restoring an aging work of art is a difficult process, and our prowess allows us to excel at completing the job in a timely and professional manner. Not only does restoring a sculpture require us to make it look good as new, but it is also important to maintain the structural integrity of the sculpture as well as using paint that will not allow for the color to fade over time. The restoration ACF did on “The Bench Generations” by Niki De Saint Phalle operates as a bench as well as a work of art. It was a main priority to confirm that once we completed the restoration, it could still act as a functional bench, as well as a work of art.
