Artist Transforms Contours, Roads and Borders Into Stunning Portraits

Written by

 

Ed Fairburn (featured previously here and here) is back with a new series of beautiful portraits drawn directly onto maps.

Fairburn has an uncanny ability to make visual connections with map elements like roads and contours with human facial features; and for the last three years he has been experimenting with this series, continuing to incorporate map elements in novel and creative ways.

New releases include a star chart depicting the first mother in space, astronaut Anna Fisher; and new map portraits including Los Angeles, Denver, Sydney; and a series of World War I Trench Maps from Northern France.

These works will be debuted during an exhibition at the Mike Wright Gallery in Denver which will run until December 19, 2015. If you’re interested in original works and limited edition prints, check out the available pieces online at the Mike Wright Gallery.
