perhaps you know swedish artist thomas broomé for his low res man sculpture, but i also love what clever pieces he has created here in his modern mantra collection. he is using a liberal amount of the alphabet to create texture, depth and positive/negative space in his clean lined drawings, and takes us on a very funky house tour at the same time.

i love the walk-in closet.

thomas is represented by the galleri magnus karlsson in stockholm. you can see lots more intriguing artwork in a variety of media from thomas on his website too.

    This is so fun! I’m kind of a “take it at face value kind of person” so I didn’t get it, until I read wall on the fourth one. I love bed bed bed bed and lamp lamp lamp. Playing with the positive and negative space is awesome.

  8. the scholar Says:

    hi bri!

    that’s awesome. there is something so joyful in finding a bigger point in art, all on your own, don’t you think? i know exactly what it feels like, and i love it.

    glad you came over! 🙂

    I am a first year architecture student, and we are learning about the manipulation and depiction of space, so I think these are the COOLEST thing i have seen in a while! I even showed my professor!
