For artists and creatives alike, it’s all in the details. Former engineer Simon Beck has made a name for himself by creating intricate geometrical designs using just a pair of snowshoes, a map drawing, and a compass. The Canadian artist has created all sorts of unique designs, including a massive snowflake at the Peyto Lake in Alberta. He’s back today with a handful of new designs, expanding and adding to his #ProjectSnow series.
The geometrical designs are first conceptualized as large-sized drawings, and some of his pieces take up top six hours to create. Mr. Beck stated: “Usually I work outwards from the center.” He opened up more about his creative process and said, “Straight lines are made by using the compass and walking in a straight line towards a point in the distance, curves are made by judgment. Both require a lot of practice to get it good.” His two latest designs are massive in size, boasting exceptional attention to detail and a crisp pattern throughout. Impeccable doesn’t quite do it justice.
Take a closer look at Simon Beck’s latest creations in the images below. We’ve also included a short video as well. While you’re at it, be sure to keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the art department coming very soon.
