  • This is absolutely beautiful…all those angular geometric shapes that sort of move in an organic form. I really enjoy the hollow-eyed figures as well!

  • I really dig your art. latley i have been crazy about doing collages..my friends say they are maketable…just wondering have you had success with sales? It would be nice…for me its a hobbie, they do take up some time. so some marketing tips would be great. i put one on my face book titled satan in his under world..my face book is under the same email. i just did a alien man.. have not posted it yet..well hope to hear back from you..Mikey

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!
