"Vique-Deco" is a visual art term used to describe the use of reclaimed patinated materials as an artistic medium. 

 

Combining the two words "vintage" and "antique" create the word "Vique," while the word "Deco" is merely a shortened version of the word "d├ęcor" or "decoration." Vique-Deco celebrates the natural patina of an aged object by showcasing rust marks, nail holes, cracks, old paint layers, and other natural aged patinas that bring out the beauty and character of repurposed antiquated materials, while telling a story directly from the work of art itself.
