A map makes lives easier by displaying important information in terms of distance and direction. It also tells us the size and shape of various countries/continents and the way they are connected. Maps are a great way to know about our Mother Earth and are an important part of geography. Giving this paper drawing a new lease of life is artist Ingrid Dabringer.
Anything can serve as a canvas for an artist and for Dabringer, it is maps. She makes good use of them and swaps these informative papers into amazing pieces of art, which will force you to slip in a state of awe. The artist uses these maps as a base for creating incredible painted figures.
Normally, people discard old maps when they have served their purpose. But this artist embraces such paper material and swaps them into tasteful art. Attention-grabbing figures are created by using interdependent lines. Dabringer ingeniously exploits the displayed colors, geography and roads, printed on a map.
This gives birth to awe-inspiring human figures and fanciful living things. Acrylic paint has been used to achieve art forms that will give a new meaning to walls they are displayed on. The eco-friendly drawings are a true image of the artistâs creative streak. So, if you have a few maps dumped in your storeroom catching dust, pump them with an artful life like Dabringer.
