The art of award-winning artist and Atlanta native Derrick Spivey is now on display in one of the display cases at City Hall.
Spivey has been creating functional art in a fanciful environment for over 12 years. What began as a challenge, metal sculpturing quickly turned into a career that's both enjoyed by Spivey himself, spectators, critics, and of course customers.
Featured in local and regional art shows, galleries, and festivals as well as an international customer base, Spivey's invigorating pieces have won over many crowds as well as accolades. His work has appeared on VH1, celebrity homes, restaurants, hotels and museums as well as a feature in "Hip Hop Weekly."
In 2010, Spivey became the Head Creative Designer of SC 1775 located in Decatur, where he later became owner. SC 1775 served as both an art gallery and event venue that continuously impressed over 300,000 of the people that unexpectedly walked through a seemingly futuristic artful ballroom full of life size sculptures.
After five years of successfully running the event venue in January 2015 Spivey decided to turn his focus completely to Creating More Art and Fabrication for personal use and businesses. Spivey is enthused to grow Spivey's Creations to being notarized both nationally and internationally recognized as the number one fabrication firm specializing in metal and design for both homes and public use, video and movie set design.
The art will be on display for three months and can be viewed when City Hall is open, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
