String art is considerded a popular craft; mostly used at schools as an educational activity to reinforce math concepts. in my case i do it for the love of creating unique pieces.
On December 2014 I started working with string art mixed media as a side income making shapes, icons, fan art and personalized names…
In 2015 “Sophia” the artwork shown in the picture above was born; Then, I fell in love with the wonderful idea of completing a series of portraits employing mixed media and string art; Capturing some of the face natural expressions. Including the most popular faces : Happiness, Sadness, fear, anger, seduction, surprise, shame, confusion, And others like madness, discontent, calm, intrigue or any other expression that captivates my imagination.
It was until 2017, after several bumps on my road that was able to start completing bit by bit a series of single faces. Starting with the piece “Portrait of a unknow woman” a delicate face made with oil pastels, acrylics on wood finished with the string art technique.
