Artworks Out of Handwritten Text

Artist Phil Hansen uses a labor-intensive approach to create his large-scale murals. Instead of simply drawing a figure or going the pointillism route, Hansen produces many of his pieces entirely out of handwritten text from submitted stories of challenges and struggles to words of encouragement and hope. Ultimately, each portrait, landscape, and scene is reflected in Hansen’s process.

Whether it’s a text-based mural made with a permanent marker or a giant painting of Bruce Lee formed with carefully applied karate chops, the artist has found interesting methods to share his artistic work. Hansen’s imaginative technique is the result of a hurdle he had to overcome as a budding artist.
