Arte y Arquitectura en Varios tonos de Verde


Arhitectural Hand Drawings by  Rafael Araujo

When it comes to architectural drawings, computer-aided design software is being used  and due to this, hand-drawn art seems to begin to lose.  The venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo show us that no matter how impressive the technology, nothing can match the expressiveness of hand-drawings.

His series of architectural style drawings entitled ‘Calculation’ are done with pencil and pen and seem to try to give an answer to the question “Is the Universe actually made of math?”. Araujo creates complex fields of three dimensional space where he renders the motion and mathematical brilliance of nature with a pencil, ruler and protractor. The trajectories of a butterfly fly or the logarithmic spirals of shells are beautifully illustrated by Araujo, who`s remarkable skills seem to resurrect the art of hand-drawing.

Araujo`s illustrations appear to be drawn from Da Vinci’s sketchbooks,  showing us that our reality isn`t just described by mathematics, it is mathematics.

"In my sculptures and paintings, the human being is the “Leitmotiv.” In almost every work of art, I almost intuitively sketch a human figure as a basis that I then position in relationship with the environment. In my latest series of work, I want to design the human being in relationship with nature and environment. Nature is vital for us humans. We experience the world around us through our senses and we are virtually air and water. I find this fascinating: it makes the human vulnerable. Actually vulnerability is also an important theme to me."
