Art is Blood, Sweat, and Tears...Literally

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

 

This story is not for the faint of heart.

Brooklyn-based artist, Ted Lawson has taken a new meaning to art being a part of the artist by painting a self portrait using his own blood. This is how he did it.

By using an automated self-filling brush and ink Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC)
machine, he created a vector-based artwork all from bitmap images... and a little of himself.The entire process took hours to complete but Ted kept his energy and blood sugar levels up by drinking juice and eating biscuits.

 

 

“By creating a self portrait, the work references other culturally symbolic ideas to do with narcissism and inward thinking – the essence of the “selfie”, which is clearly having its moment,” “By creating a self portrait, the work references other culturally symbolic ideas to do with narcissism and inward thinking – the essence of the “selfie”, which is clearly having its moment,” –Ted Lawson

I think this just one-upped the selfie...
