If a picture's worth a thousand words, then these Pia Habekost paintings of words are probably worth tens of thousands of words.

Pia Habekost is a Berlin-born, Los Angeles-based artist who specializes in typographic art, which utilizes text in creative and engaging ways. What's amazing about Habekost's art is her precision in painting out various fonts juxtaposed by her magnificent backgrounds that establish the perfect atmosphere for her works.

My favorite of these Pia Habekost paintings has got to be the one entitled 'She Hides The Dope In Her Hair' which features a flurry of colors with almost illegible text.

Implications - There's been a recent insurgence of typographic art on the Internet and its popularity is on the rise. Corporations can capitalize on this recent typography boom by utilizing advertising campaigns which primarily rely on text with unique fonts.
