For You!



"For You!" — steel sculpture — 30 x 24 x 0.5 inches (base is 15" wide x 7" deep), this is edition #1 of 18. THIS IS A COMMISSION-ONLY PIECE THAT IS MADE UPON REQUEST. PLEASE ALLOW 3-4 WEEKS LEAD TIME. *PLEASE CONTACT GALLERY REGARDING AVAILABILITY. "For You!" is a chromed steel sculpture depicting a hand holding flowers. Michael Kalish is an internationally acclaimed mixed-media artist based in Los Angeles. His passion for metal started with vintage car parts and license plates and evolved to more refined laser cut aluminum and mirrored stainless steel sculptures, with references to American culture. In his most daring and bold expression of the force of nature known as love, the renowned sculptor unveiled his own artistic sonnet in sculpture form – "THE ART OF FINDING LOVE", a 20 foot x 6 foot x 6 foot interactive sculpture in February 2017. Kalish has designed the contemporary piece so that the viewer must find the exact vantage point where the sculpture is no longer abstract and "Love" literally comes into focus. A series of these large-scale public monuments has traveled across the United States since 2017. Michael Kalish has completed several large-scale public installations for which he is well known, including “reALIze”, a large-scale multi-dimensional Muhammad Ali sculpture in downtown Los Angeles. The monument is larger than life, as is Ali’s legacy: an appropriate testament to the essence for the legend the world has come to know, simply, as “The Greatest.” The breath-taking effect is an enormous, 360-degree, two-story structure composed of five miles of stainless steel cables, two miles of aluminum tubing, and 1,300 boxing speed bags. Like Kalish's other works, large and small, "reALIze" comes into focus from one vantage point challenging the viewer to find the subject.
