Calligram Art

What is a calligram? Read more about it!

A calligram is written text, arranged in such a way that it forms a thematically related image.

When I am making a calligram, I write most of times names. If you look at the Giraffe, I only wrote Jirafa (Spanish for Giraffe) to make the Giraffe as it is. While making the Butterfly, I wrote the word Mariposa (Spanish for Butterfly) numerous times to create this charming little animal. Sometimes I write a poem, or a phrase. Almost everything is possible – even a portrait of your own dog or cat. You can see a lot of work I made, on my portfolio-page.

When creating the wedding hearts, I write the names in red and black, each heart consists a name, written numerous times. In the babyfeet|birthday calligram I write the name in black, combined with blue (for a boy) or pink (for a girl) to make the sweet calligram complete.

Every calligram I make is approved with a certificate from the government of the Canary Islands.

These broadcasts are made by BTC, Canarias Hoy and the making of Einstein and the giraffe are made in-house. If you want to see more, find me on YouTube.
