Russ Mills

Great mixed media work by illustrator Russ Mills. Kinda like Ian Francis with a sprinkle of Jackson Pollock (I never knew about this site! I could waste so much time here). Love this stuff.

    Where do you find so many talented individuals? These are really impressive.. especially like how the hair/paint splatter on the first one has a lot of depth – looks 3d.

  • reminds me of ben tour – so sick. i really love the motion of the paint/graphic molds a face,.. its like a free flowing spirit.

      Russ Mills makes random backgrounds, then scans them onto his computer, puts the picture of the person on and using photoshop to edit it, then prints the picture and splashes ink on the print 🙂 I did Russ Mills in my GCSE portfolio x

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!
