THE NEW BOTTOM LINE OF FACE LINE ART

EXPLORING THE NEW TREND OF FACE-LINE ART

By Greer Krige, Lifestyle Content Creator

Yes, the earrings, t-shirt, and mug designs you have seen cropping up is an actual thing. It’s called Face Line Art and I’ll explain why it’s the next big trend.

Face line art, an extension of line art is a single line used to create an image. The new design trend features faces of all shapes, sizes and distortions hence face line art.

Now to give you some background on the practice of line-art. It was initially popularised by surrealist masters Picasso and Matisse and is now enjoying a revival. It’s generally regarded as a minimalist abstract style of art by those more attuned with art lingo.

Each artist uses different characteristics to create unique pieces, some examples include:

Simple versus complex

Smooth versus rough

Sharp corners versus smooth corners

Single line thickness versus A variation in line thickness

Filled in areas versus non filled in areas. 

Colour versus without color

Open lines versus closed lines 

 

The main aim of line art is to simplifying their subject matter with a single line while still capturing their essence, not an easy thing to do for an unskilled artist which is why face line art has become a sort after talent. 

For those of us who aren’t yet following in Picasso’s footsteps, the best way to try out this trend is by bringing it into your home. You can start small with a framed artwork, scatter cushion or go for the more daring feature wall with a boldface line art wallpaper or a statement face line floor rug.

 

Either way as far as I am concerned, the home has no heart, unless it has art.
