By day Drew Tyndell is a freelance director who makes animations for Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon and suchlike, but by night he creates his own brand of puzzle-inspired wooden artworks using wood. Combining sculpture, painting and collage in one unique blend, his work is rooted in a graphic design education, using wooden blocks in strong colours to make subtle references to a grid form and to architectural processes.
And the architecture reference isn’t so spurious, either; for his inspiration he cites the process of watching his father, a builder, work as a child and “70’s cabin architecture that’s half modern, half strange.” As for laying a floor with it? It sure would be an exciting new alternative to parquet.
