Amazing Map Portraits by Ed Fairburn

Illustrator Ed Fairburn uses a figured sheet of road and metro maps to create an amazing ink and pencil map portraits. Artist uses the mess of rails, rivers and even roads to create a pattern of person’s complexities.

 “The work I produce is largely figurative, and through the exploration of the human form I examine the patterns and structures which exist across the body. Emphasis is placed on the ‘fragmented’ texture of the skin, a process which has encouraged my work to evolve from its occupation of plain paper to the potential occupation of other, pre-fragmented or pre-patterned surfaces.”

Ed Fairburn says, that this work have shown both, geographic locations and features of his chosen subejcts. Take a breath, because here you will see an incredible piece of art !
