Looking like something out of a sci-fi film the size and scale of some of these works of art blows the mind away, let alone how they are made! After looking at all these images to come you will never look at a coffee stir stick the same way again.
9 – Details – jonathanbrilliant.com
This image not only shows the exploration factor that most people get with these works of art but also shows up-close the incredible weave that they are all made from! You are not talking a few stir sticks here and there, there is often hundreds of thousands of them!
8 – The main man – jonathanbrilliant.com
I love this image of Jonathan himself putting some of the finer details to his work of art. The look of contentment, as well as concentration, really shows how much emotion he puts into these artworks. But to be fair all that effort always seems to pay off in the long run as they all look amazing.
7 – Complex – jonathanbrilliant.com
The levels of work in the complexity and design of these are enough to make my head hurt, let alone all the work that goes into making them. Looking at it from this angle really shows how amazing these art installations are.
6 – Snakes and Tunnels – jonathanbrilliant.com
Often with these works of art, there are several tunnels of coffee cups and lids going to and from the main installation. It creates an almost dream-like environment that is full of wonder and there to be explored and investigated.
5 – Keeping a lid on it – jonathanbrilliant.com
Do you see that main beam section going through the artwork? Well, that is made from coffee lids! Hundreds and thousands of them. I just love how random everything is, but with some strange form of control and order as well.
4 – Parallel lines – jonathanbrilliant.com
The artist often points out that the artworks are just collections of parallel lines much like it is in life. It does have to be said that the artist also gives a lot back to the city when it comes to his artworks and has done several pieces that are for his local city and the people in it.
3 – Web – jonathanbrilliant.com
This is not one of the original press release images of the works of art but instead taken by an observer at the Visual Art Center in Richmond. It really shows the web of stir sticks in great detail and gives a taste of what the atmosphere is like at one of the showcases events that Jonathan makes.
2 – Looking Up – jonathanbrilliant.com
There is something quite nest like and natural about Jonathan’s artworks. I am sure there is a political message behind them all, but it falls aside for the amazement and wonder that comes with them all. I can only wonder just how long it takes him to make these.
1 – Lamp Shade – jonathanbrilliant.com
Well, it might well have been the world’s biggest lamp-shade, but call it what you like, this stunning art installation really shows just how big Jonathan’s artworks are! That whole ceiling balcony part dripping down parts all around made with nothing but wooden coffee sticks simply blows my mind. Please do take the time to visit the artist’s website as he not only has many, many more in this amazing style but also works with other mediums as well!
