    crazy good. would love to know how long it takes him to finish one?

    • I was wondering the same thing! The reflection in the sunglasses in the 3rd one down is WAY awesome.

  • Ray Materson is another meticulous embroidery artist. He recreated baseball cards and photos using the thread from socks that he traded for his cigarettes when he was in jail.

  • damn… very cool!

  • Definitely reminds me early Chuck Close work!

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!
