Pencil on paper translated into 3D by technology developed by Daniil Frants

Patterns of the Mind Frants, Govorkov

Not a sketch, painted canvas, nor a performance PATTERNS OF THE MIND is a hybrid between graphics, easel painting and action in the spirit of Abstract Expressionism or Late Surrealism. Drawn live by Ivan Govorkov in the exhibition space, viewers experience the composition alongside the artist as it comes from hand in 2D and is translated into 3D by accomplished technology teen wonder Daniil Frants.
