The more times lines overlap in an area of the portrait, the darker it gets which allows Krajnc (a.k.a. Cvern) to control the shading and the detail of his artworks.
According to his profile of Saatchi Art, “Cvern has always been amazed by the string art. He is inspired and challenged by the art of straight lines and strives to make work that is beautiful in every point of view. His aim is to create images that go beyond capturing a likeness. The results are compositions of overlapping lines that are created to help magnify the layers of meanings made possible by our senses and perceptions.”
The Slovenian artist worked many years as a graphic designer, software and web developer, but was always inspired and challenged by the art of straight lines, and now dedicates his time to creating awe-inspiring string art at his workshop near Ljubljana.
