Osman Yousefzada is the multidisciplinary artist behind England's new installation, Infinity Pattern 1. Measuring 10,000 square meters and weighing five tons, the record-breaking piece takes the world's largest canvas title. The artist posted his piece on the facade of Selfridges Birmingham.
Comprising of an endlessly tessellating pattern of geometric black and pink shapes, the vast installation comments on migration, labor, and race themes. Infinity Pattern 1 acts as a new dramatic landmark for the department store. The Burningham-born artist and the son of Pakistani-Afghan migrants aimed to showcase a universal truth about ethnographic elements of migration. The piece imagines a world without borders to reflect the artist's personal ethnic history and elements of inherent cultural symbolism.
