String Art - Space

March 06, 2018

String art is characterized by an arrangement of colored thread strung between points to form geometric patterns or representational designs. 

One of those inspired artists is American artist John Eichinger. He specialized in creating geometric designs which he referred to as “string mandalas.”  A popular hobby kit distributor at the time, Open Door Enterprises, first marketed his string art kits in the late 1960s. This is noted as one of the first times everyday people took interest in string art. It became widely popular in the 1970s with an uncountable amount of U.S. homes boasting home-made string art on their walls.

Several decades later, string art continues to intrigue the curious and artistic alike.
