  • i truely love those screenprintings. so clean and well done

    • Jason Davis

      Mark is using his art to manipulate people. But it’s not just personally at Mark. Every piece of work he does draws your attention, subliminally or not, to the eye. One of his pieces shows for what reason. A set of buildings, in a pyramid shape, with a TV on top displaying an eye.

      It’s a bastardization of the illuminati symbol. To prove he’s not the only one drawing your attention to this, take a look at a great masters work, Da Vinci’s last supper. Jesus’ body forms the triangle, or pyramid, and his head is tilted to the side so his eye is directly over the Aphex. Take a look. You’ll want to look at other art to see if this is true. Also look for 2 R’s back to back at any scale in art work, from ancient Egyptian art/Mayan cultures to modern day compositions. The eye features HEAVILY in all of the as the manipulating element.

  • I just got my print of the body with the Deers head and antlers in red framed and on the wall – I so love it. You have to do more screenprints! I need to fill my wall with these….

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!
