Like a web of cross-hatching gone wild, 20-year old English artist Josh Bryan creates fantastically cool celebrity portraits using just a black pen. That’s right, this isn’t computer illustrated work. His portraits, which he appropriately calls Triangulations, see well-known people – like Marilyn Monroe, Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Knoxville and even Albert Einstein – represented using his linear, web-like style.[see_also]
The hundreds of tiny lines make the portraits highly recognizable, while his choice of different cross-hatching densities give the geometric works a deep, angular sense of lighting. If you look closely at his lines, you’ll notice they aren’t perfectly straight. It’s something which gives the images a subtly organic feel and blurs the border between their human subject matter and their almost computer-like style. The large scale pieces are beyond cool and would make any wall have style in spades. Want!
