When a creative mind starts churning its cogs and wheels, there is no telling what will come out of it. Have you ever held a pencil in your hand and started thinking that with it and a piece of paper you could create something that could potentially last forever? Leonardo da Vinci realized this and got to work, and there are of course numerous artists throughout our history who have found the same insight. But it’s not the easiest of tasks to achieve this illuminated stage. There is more to a pencil than just pencil strokes and shadows. If you start thinking outside the box, there is nothing that will limit your imagination and what you can create with it.
an artist with a seemingly unstoppable force of creativity, imagined
what others couldn’t. He put together a family made entirely out of
pencils and plastic string. But that’s not what is so impressive about
it. It is actually a whole family created on a life size scale that will
have your mind blown in a matter of seconds. I am not even going to try
and venture into the numbers of this one since I am sure they are on
the region of hundreds of thousands of pencils.
As if that wasn’t enough, the sharpening, cutting and assembly of
these art pieces must have taken forever. You would have thought that
after putting this family together, Federico would seriously have had
enough of pencils, right? Nope, he set out to create yet another form of
pencil art that is even more complex since it is created without the
aid of 3D space. By placing pencils diagonally in patterns, he managed
to put together some of the most beautiful pieces of art you can
imagine, and that’s without even using one single pencil stroke. That’s
what I call the edge of creativity.
