British designer Kyle Bean created these works of art for the ‘contributors’ page of 2011 handmade issue of wallpaper design magazine. Becoming one with the project, Bean created the faces of the seven magazine editors with colored pencil shavings. Bean must have had a lot of colored pencils lying around. Not only do these portraits take a lot of time and supplies, they also require great patience as it is especially difficult to create the image of someone’s face with something so ridged.

John Powers: God’s Comic, 2010

5 x 3 x 5 meters, Sculpture constructed from polystyrene blocks (site-specific unique installation).

John Powers: God's Comic

The impenetrable geometries of John Powers’ abstract sculptures call to mind a wide range of influences, borrowing equally from art movements like postminimalism and pop culture icons like Star Wars. Meticulously constructed by hand, Power’s forms are constructed out of a limited formal vocabulary: Polystyrene blocks cut to a selection of preset sizes, attached to each other at 90 degree angles. The resulting structure gives the appearance of being a computer-aided design but is in reality the outcome of a human-executed algorithm, dictated by the artist’s intuition expressed through the repetitive action of connecting blocks.
