Pen Blow

Check out this artwork created with a ballpoint pen by Brooklyn artist Shane McAdams. There are really no words necessary, I just cannot stop looking at these.

He opens ballpoint pen cartridges, yanks off the tips, then, with his mouth, blows ink through the tubes onto 12-inch-by-12 inch or 24-by-24-inch panels. When the ink flows out, it’s saturated with color and so viscous that, “Instead of turning to a mist, it blows out into sticky interconnected strings,” McAdams tells Co.Design. That gives the paintings a spider web-like quality.
