Typographical Portraits by Fairburn

28. January, 2013 Art Trends No comments

What a cool & interesting concept! 

To me it explores the idea of finding a person- their personality & the adventure of getting to know a person, with, through & amongst all the far stretching alleys, streets & motor ways, hills, lakes & rivers, mountainous & forested terrain. All the rich detail & contours imaginable that could come on a map.

How well can you know a person? Well how well could you know a land? Intimately? Personally? Theoretically? The short cuts, long cuts & scenic routes? Marsh lands & coast lines?

Fascinating concept & beautifully articulated & expressed with these illustrations by the artist Ed Fairburn.

A concept actually I’d thoroughly enjoy exploring artistically myself. Inspiring! Inspiring creations & inspiring thoughts.
