Evan Eisman – Brooklyn Blast Studio

If you’ve ever toiled at removing decades-old paint or varnish from a piece of furniture or annoying bubbles and scratches from a ring shank (me! me!) you understand how sandpaper abrades a surface. Imagine then what a high velocity stream of sand directed onto a surface can do. And imagine that stream directed by an artist.

Evan Eisman opened Brooklyn Blast Studio in 1998 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard 7 years after obtaining a degree in painting from Pratt Institute. He and his team use ‘blast technology’ to create everything from amazing subtle textures to precise engravings on glass, stone, wood, metal and even wool felt and paper. Prittay cool if you ask me.
