  • Haha. Love the raining bricks one.

  • Excellent. Je serais bien incapable de faire des autoportraits. Très bonne idée de se représenter avec & au travers de son travail !

    J’aime l’art urbain quand il est inventif comme ça.

    Usually, I don’t like things like this. They seem too self-indulgent. However, in Nihalani’s case, there seems to be a real conceptual element with significant self-control that makes them a step above. Not sure where the marketability is, however; how many people need to own clever “” photographs (which these certainly are).

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!
