Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. These simple four colours combined in printing can create a huge colour gamut. Not sure if its because i’ve worked in print for so long but there is something about the base colour combination that still brings a smile to my face.
The boxes are simple and clean with CMYK colours spilling from them. Combining a few of my art staples, this shows my design geek love of pantones, CMYK colour pallettes, simple layout and clean geometry.
Been working on quite a bit lately but not updating on here so brace yourselves for a barrage of random art over the next few weeks. (Sorry!) Hopefully, however some people out there may appreciate some of my art.
Heart Cubes by Alex Patterson
This geometric piece is basically a stylised, simplified heart.
Always had a thing about isometric boxes ever since my Dad taught me how to correctly use a drawing board with T square and set squares. From that day I immediately had a respect for geometric form.
This was a design/artwork that is developed from 16 bit binary and is very personal to me. I still intend to get this as a shoulder/upper arm tattoo.
When interprated it reveals my philosophy in life, ‘Question Everything’.
The cubes represent the love i have of geometry and natural order. The non obvious layout of the design represents chaos. The colour scheme is representative of my love of art and design. The CMYK print process combination also aesthetically looks great.
To convert the art back into binary(ones and zero’s) you need to read from top to bottom, left to right. Each cube represents four ones or zeros. A small cube is a zero, then filled left section is a one, blank top is a zero and right filled is anther one. It takes two cubes to represent one letter. 01010001 (top 2 cubes = Q).
