"The Evolution of Steel" Exclusive Preview on Thursday, May 5, 2011 at 285 Lafayette St. (Between Houston and Prince Street.), New York, NY 10012
, Founder and Owner of Hadar Metal Design
, an Eco-conscious design group that creates one-of-a-kind custom bikes and environmental installations, will launch his first showcase on May 6th at 285 Lafayette Street. Hadar has worked to develop new sculptural art installations that bring evolving environmental technologies to the forefront of the art world and will feature the first completely solar powered electric vehicles and photovoltaic steel trees, all with Hadar’s innovative and unique flair. The results of this work has earned an enthusiastic and diverse global audience of fine artists, craftspeople, environmental scientists, engineers, technicians and social activists who bring their knowledge and energy to the development of new projects.
“The Evolution of Steel,” debuted with a private preview on Thursday, May 5th in the original space that Hadar began his journey into the art world years ago. After a storied career in the nightlife and theater industries, Hadar decided to pursue his true passion and trained himself how to craft steel through natural means (around fire hydrants, lamp posts, trash cans and trees) rather than using heat or electric equipment. The exhibit displayed everything from Josh’s crude early work to his more recent custom bikes such as “ER’s Teardrop,” which features nickel on rolled steel, hand-spun aluminum plate wheels, and a hand-blown, steel-wrapped glass fuel tank with an 80 cc gas powered motor with pedal assist. In addition to the bikes, Josh showcased his newest creations, solar powered steel trees that represent the future of eco-conscious design, already displayed across the globe including an installation at the Intercontinental Hotel in Times Square.
