Work / Illustration

Exhibition: Siggi Eggertsson pulls another phenomenal idea out of the bag

If we told you that Siggi Eggertsson had done some new, spectacular work, you probably wouldn’t find it hard to believe. But this time the boy’s really cracked it creating more of his mind-bending illustration, this time at a a scale we can scarcely comprehend. His latest show Skvís at the Spark Design Space, Reykjavik plasters every inch of floor, wall and ceiling in a pattern of his own creation.

It’s not just a simple, colourful abstract though, stare for long enough and you’ll start to notice that this pattern is looking right back at you. In fact there’s hundreds of pairs of eyes ready to meet your gaze at every turn because Siggi’s made this pattern out of a multitude of little abstract faces. It’s like finding the face of Jesus in your toast, but infinitely more unsettling. Glorious!
