Chuy’s hired FlatFork to restore their 25 year old giant red fish. The paint had faded to pink, and the original hard coat was flaking off. We peeled and sanded the sculpture down to the foam, added in new details, recoated and repainted the fish. Plus we gave it a pair of brand new lips!
BODIES…The Exhibition put its heart on display Wednesday, August 15th for its “Have A Heart” event, by unveiling a huge heart delivered to South Street Seaport’s Pier 17. The heart sculpture is 13ft long, 7ft wide and 12ft high, and designed by artist Faith Schexnayder at FlatFork Studio in Austin, TX.
