Mesmerizing performance drawings by artist and dancer Tony Orrico. He is a human spirograph, performing works for up to 4 hours continuously!
Watch the videos below!
so funny and so powerful – amazing work
great performance. I cant help feel it eeds musical accompaniment
So the order and symmetry
Watching him makes my wrists hurt.
wow! this is something I`ve never imagined before! Great job and great muscles!
so, this is kinda funny…i actually did a spirograph performance like this my first year of college. it was only for 10 minutes though..in 25 degree weather. Awesome to see someone else expand on the idea
very cool…. looks like a serious workout.
I like watching artists work, and this is friggin awesome.
How much does he charge for these? interesting to see time vs price.
Just watching this makes my neck ache! Really beautiful, though…
This is seriously AMAZING.
At first sight, I thought the top image was made of hair. I love the intricacy and depth of the drawings that give contours. The way he performs his art is inspiring, it’s like a child at play but creating something so much more intelectual.

I love it so much when people incorporate their entire bodies into the making of their art. It gives the pieces such a unique sense of movement. It involves the mind in a whole different way. Agh! This stuff is great!

can’t be unmoved watching it, splendid work.
He is such an inspiration for me to make art and work out lol. What a craetive idea, Ive never seen anything like this before! Lovely
pretty cool, but I can’t believe people started clapping in unison for over a minute at the end of the first video. no one ever do that during a performance piece.
I walked by the pieces he did, standing, today. I knew they looked familiar!
very, super, amazing. unbelievable discipline and consistency in muscle movements. really love you work, you inspire me.

This is utterly brilliant! What a fascinating idea!
very strange art
This is very inspirational. I would love to experience this live.
I can’t help responding to person who felt that there should be music. The sound of the pencil on the drawing surface is in itself a kind of music, and very alluringly rhythmical. Any music would surely have to start from the cue of these sounds.
totally agree, the sound is essential to the piece. one of my pet peeves is random music thrown over the top of everything – sometimes i am really annoyed by the music playing at an art show and wish i could sit and stare at a piece in silence

How amazing! Would love to be able to do something like that!
do you have trouble holding a pencil? and/or spinning in circles?
