The “JUNK SEAGULL”

 

 Building Four Art Director, Frank Yoculan, is nationally recognized for this “found-objects” sculpture outside the Fisherman’s Wharf Hyatt/Hotel Zephyr in San Francisco. 

Constructed out of welded steel and found objects, including propane canisters, parts of shipping containers, and metal car parts. 

The Junk Seagull stands 94 inches high, 48 inches wide, 78 inches in depth. 

Side note: After cutting the “feathers” out of metal, the metal ovals left over were used to create the metal sculpture for Hotel Caribe in San Juan, PR.

 

 

The “WIRE HORSE”

 

Amazing art piece done for Hotel Avalon in Alpharetta, GA. The clients originally wanted a horse made out of driftwood pieces. In the trial of fabrication and installation, the driftwood horse was found to be not exactly what the client was looking for. Desiring a cool and modern art piece, Frank Yoculan reconstructed the original idea in white and winter white wire, steel, and aluminum. The result matched the look and scale of the project and is a destination focal point within the client’s space.
