Check out this little video. It only goes for a few minutes but it probably describes Jos's work and process better than any words can . . .
Jos Van Hulsen is an artist, sculptor and furniture maker from West Footscray who scours his environment for the found objects he conjures into works of art.
Jos is one of the partners in Post Industrial Design and is the principal Artist/designer for the store. Jos's breadth of works ranges from large sculptural works along Eastlink to small sculptural works for the home. He also is a furniture maker, tinkerer and mad inventor. In both his Art and Design work Jos is inspired by industrial objects.
“Past cultures have been remembered for what they preserved, this century will be remembered for what it throws away. My work is concerned with transforming discarded materials into something new. My interest lies in combining histories, materials from different contexts, times and places.”
Jos is available for customised work for private clientele, Architects, Interior Designers and Landscape Architects.
