IIW welded art exhibition, 2021
As President of the International Institute of Welding, it is my privilege to extend a warm welcome to the 2021 IIW Welded Art Photographic Exhibition. This is our third exhibition for welded art. Due to the outbreak and continuing risks of Covid-19, both this year’s and last year’s exhibitions consist of downloadable digital collections. It is important to note that this exhibition is neither a competition nor a selection of the best in the world of welded art but is intended to be an informal and unpressured platform for people to show their abilities and artistic expression. Welded art provides a number of benefits; as a hobby it can prove to be therapeutic; it is a wonderful tool to improve the image of welding and, in some cases can provide an income for people with the appropriate artistic skills. 42 exhibits have been received from 15 countries and cover 10 Categories. The IIW 2021 Digital Collection showcases these benefits through the stories of the artists and their passion for welded art. A key message to everyone, including the 700-800 welding professionals who will be attending the IIW Annual Assembly is the vast breadth of welding. This welded art exhibition showcases the flexibility and versatility of the welding discipline, and how it is gaining acceptance as another artistic medium capable of expressing many different designs and forms. Our desire through holding these welded art exhibitions, is also to encourage as many people as possible to take up the art, trade, or profession of welding.
