Pens make marks. Needles make holes. Either can be used as a weapon of self-defense, a toothpick, or create tattoos. The limitations of the pen and needle as an art making tool is restricted only by the creative intention of it’s operator. Moving between the conventional and non-conventional application of these art making tools, SURFACE 1°22 invited a group of designers and artists to explore the possibilities of creating illustrative based artwork using Pens and/or Needles, playing with the notions of surface and texture.
Contributing artists include Izziyana Suhaimi, Lully Crooelly, Serene Lin, Shang Li, Chico Chicano, Nazierah Sanat, Molly Wallis, Deborah McKellar, Agnes Chong, Tito, Xiuting, Wrul. B and Maria Walf.
