Safet Zec

I chose Safet Zec to focus on due to his complex use of line, with his drawings often relying on a technique of building up lines to create density and texture. Even the negative space that others may leave blank is given texture using lines.

Zec’s exposure to atrocities and political instability in his youth is the inspiration for intricate and painstakingly designed line drawings, that a both nostalgic and sorrowful.
