Love from Brazil.

Sao Paulo Brazil has its own version of Tim Barnard in the form of the artist duo Mulheres Barbadas. The two self-described “bearded ladies” take turns drawing until the page is full – love this idea! Their portfolio includes lots of music packaging and work for Coca Cola and MTV. Enjoy a few more images after the jump.

    COLABTASTIC! I say you start this with all your blog readers. just mail out a blank sheet of paper and see what happens.

  • that’s actually a cool idea… i would probably just post a digital drawing – the question is how many would actually do it, would you?

  • kyle

    damn, that style is so similar to tim barnard…they both kick ass, but when its partially in color, it looks pretty sweet

  • yea i agree that’s the one thing i like about this work more is the use of color (although most of their work is also monochromatic)

  • james Elwhy

    Hell yes i would do it! Down like james brown to get my doodle on! COLAB STYLE HAMMY!

  • i have been brainstorming something to get a bunch of people involved in an art project – stay tuned

  • Love it! I´ll join!

  • cool ill let you guys know

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
