armenia-based architect and illustrator davit yukhanyan creates with a technical black pen on a 70 x 100 cm paper, detailed illustrations that depict the artist’s world and the one we live in, in a surrealist way. the drawings consist of different pieces in the form of small sketches that make part of a bigger one, coming together in one deeply rich image. the concept behind the pieces is that of an illustration made of illustrations, referencing our material world that consists of different pieces that when put together, complete our reality.

‘and when you lose control’ is the first piece of the series

 

 

 

the first piece of this series is called ‘and when you lose control’ and is followed by ‘isolated winner’. both of them show an abundance of detail that invites the viewer to get lost between the black and precise lines that endlessly change as new layers are discovered. each piece tells a complete different story depending on the distance, depending on the view, and depending on the interpreter.
