  • Hahaha I am cracking up at these and I don’t know why.

  • Spoony

    Somehow this reminds me of playing GTA, awesome ;p

  • Loving liz.
    The first one is def the strongest one.

  • Niko

    Haha, Patrick, it gets even funnier just thinking about the sort of mind or upbringing that caused her to be so completely fixated on the act of jumping vans or whatever, you know, top notch, to meet a woman facinated by jumping a vans, in a king of the hill backwoods evil kenivel white family on welfare sort of fashion, I love it, I want to meet this chick and rock out to van halen with her, hehe.

    • Bolla

      Dude are you on something?

  • Excellent ! I don’t really “understand” the first one, but it’s ok :p

  • Ally

    While there is a simplicity to the application of the work, I really enjoy the absurdity in the subjects and situations Brown paints. What I find really interesting is that the subjects appear very loud and spontaneous, however the paintings themselves feel quiet and calm. I find this mixture of subdued vs. spontaneous action very compelling! Thanks for the images!

  • I really like the top painting with the UFO. There is clearly a hidden meaning to the image but I can’t fathom what it is…

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!
