  • Cody

    ive been experimenting with watercolors lately and does anyone know how to get the colors to stay neatly within the lines like that? great work!

    • Zoe

      To get the colours to stay in the line you have to go over the part where you want the paint to stay with water on a paint brush. So you have to be abel to stay in the line a paint brush.

  • That shiz is rad.

  • Amanda D

    Cody– Try masking tape?

    • i think if you experiment with the way you outline the shape, the ink will naturally stop at the edge

  • Maciel

    Whoa. Those are pretty rad. I wonder what watercolour brand was used to do the 2nd and 3rd pictures? They’re pretty vibrant that’s for sure. Maybe it’s the choice of colour in the pictures.

    Wicked job.

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!
