This Artist Creates Magnificent Portraits On Maps


Aged of 26 years old, artist Ed Fairburn continues to exploit maps to put his portraits illustrations. This artist has an imaginative ability to make visual connections between the lines of a map and the features of a delicate hair. With a pencil, he integrates faces on the contours of reliefs, lakes and roads by managing to create a symbiosis between man and planet. He exhibits currently his artworks at the Mike Wright Gallery, in Denver.
