I often talk about craft, attention to detail, and the hand of the artist in relation to the visual arts and design. Today’s piece of inspiration is the epitome of those things.
At the Villa Empain, Boghossian Foundation in Brussels, is a carpet designed and drawn by artist Jonathan Bréchignac. The carpet is an image filled with amazing details all rendered by hand as a life size drawing. It was drawn using Bic pens. That’s right everything from the tassels to the weave patterns were all drawn by hand using blue Bic ball point pens. In addition to the hand work, Bréchignac has rendered a QR code on each corner. The QR codes take you to a specific messages and symbols that Bréchignac has created for the viewer.
