Art through shattering glass

Who says that you can’t draw on a glass? The Swiss contemporary visual artist, Simon Berger, is gonna prove you wrong. The drawing we meant here is not drawing with a pencil or pen but with a hammer.

He creates striking portraits by shattering glass. This sounds impossible, right? However, with a special technique, he manages to make strategic taps onto the surface to produce spider web-like motifs or cracks and render a three-dimensional form, and then form the human face.

In an interview, he explained that he experimented and created the first glass picture back in 2016. He then was immediately enthusiastic about this possibility because he was always striving to find a new form of representation. The visual artist said he likes creating beautiful things through destruction.

So inspirational! This is an example that nothing can stop you from making art. Check out his page for the more amazing artwork!
