In the Top of the Lines expo featuring NO CURVES, the artist uses different techniques to create the illusion of curves and shadowing.

With a large focus on portraits and faces, it would seem challenging to avoid using any curves at all, and from a distance it appears that the artist has cheated us all and went ahead with curved lines. Taking a closer look would reveal that they have stuck to their word and only used the straightest possible lines and sharpest angles in the artwork.

Astoundingly it is a play with colors and shapes that gives the tape design artwork its curvature and realistic appearance. The use of bright streaks of colorful tape that extend well beyond the borders of each portrait draws attention to the dynamically bold details.
