Artist of the Day: Jamie Poole

Only a portrait? look closely.
There’s nothing better than words of poems to create large scale portraits, and UK artist Jamie Poole knows it well.

For his latest project Jamie used love letters and poems that his fiancé wrote to him over the last 2 years to create this incredible life-like self portrait. Jamie says of his work, “As text is layered the words, lines and phrases are repeated and embedded into the work creating a unifying physicality.”
