    just perfect! love the colours.

  • lovelly:)all!

  • Wow! Great ilustrations.

  • Heroes, monsters and titans, awright… these illustrations make me think of the old bible-school books we used to have to thumb through on Sundays… although these make me think way more Old Testament than King Jimmy’s version (the sequel).

  • following him for some time now… very nice, very nice!!!

  • Love this, rather excellent.

    The Wyrms are probably my favourites here. Any information on what these monsters are from? I thought I saw a bit of Grendal/Beowulf in some of them at first glance, but I am pretty sure that’s not it now.

  • Haha, these selection seems to be about my monsters, some of them are coming from Lewis Caroll, some others coming from the matchbox labels !
    Anyway thanks for the post, I love that blog, have you had a look on our expérimental publishing project ICINORI.com with Mayumi Otero? Could interest some people, most of that pictures are coming from books made for icinori…

    Thanks for your interest !

  • Seriously amazing! Color, form, and subject are all truly great.

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!
