  • Byron

    Some of these remind me a lot of Egon Shiele, especially the hands.

    • Taylor

      agreeed. difficult style to pull off. Good job utilizing negative space

  • Steve

    Yes, very Egon Shiele, but non the less very beautiful drawings. Would like to see more on a page, some compositions and environment. Turn them into illustrations, them being alone they just seem very sketchy and throw-away flashy.

  • yann

    and others remind me of stephane levallois.

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!
