Abstractions made by combining 40+ puzzles, by Kent Rogowski.
genius! i would love to see these full size, on his site you can see they are pretty large!
In a world where everything “has been done already”
This person is truly unique :)
This is so so amazing.
WOW! These are sooooo brilliant, what simple incredibly, ridiculously well executed idea! I really, really, really love the color/scene in the third one. SIIIIIGH ITS SO AMAZING!!!
It is a very simple concept yet very effective. I am surprised that it has never been done before. It’s not like you need the software we have today or anything.
It’s funny how all those puzzles have the exact same tile pattern…
I guess it makes sense if they’re all from the same company.
yea that’s what it says on the website – as long as the puzzles are from the same brand they can be interchanged, you can see on the edges they don’t perfectly line up too
The Dr. Frankenstein of kitsch?
what a fantastic idea!!
I just can’t get enough of art made of puzzles, but this dude is genius! I wonder how much time it takes to make one of these? The only person I’ve ever seen do something similar to this is Sebastian Wahl.
