"Every piece of wood is like a snowflake, no two will ever be the same... it is natures art." The same goes for the Abstract Art that Ike Wilhelm creates. " I take a wood panel that has an interesting grain and highlight the individual grain patterns with intense colors using custom wood dye. It is then finished with a catalyzed lacquer to give it a bright and durable finish ". He also makes the custom frames for every piece. Ike Wilhelm also does commissions of his Abstract Art and works with the customer to come up with a unique piece of art to fit any décor and color pattern.
