Art fabrication is a process or service relating to the production of large or technically difficult artworks.
When a lone artist or designer is incapable or chooses not to realize the creation of his or her own design or conception, he or she may enlist the assistance of an art fabrication studio. Typically, an art fabrication studio has access to the resources, specialized machinery, and labor necessary to execute particularly complex projects.
"Art fabrication" should not be confused with the term "fabricated sculpture" which refers to a sculpture (usually metal) whose component parts are shaped (usually through bending), and then assembled by way of fasteners or welds (as opposed to a sculpture created through casting).
Ted Lawson is another notable art fabricator (founder of Prototype New York) who has worked on behalf of Jeff Koons, Yoko Ono, Mariko Mori, Vanessa Beecroft, Ellen Gallager, Keith Tyson and Ghada Amer
