Showcase of Complex Typography Mosaic Illustrations Known as “Fauxsaics”

Fauxsaics

“Fauxsaics are a newly emerging illustration style that is inspired by the classic tile mosaics found in hotel foyers, subway stations and public areas of some of the world’s most beautiful cities. Pioneered by the talented artist Nick Misani, these complex typography mosaic illustrations are becoming the next big design trend. Each piece begins in Adobe Illustrator, where the basic type is formed and surrounded by reference gridlines. The design is printed and painstakingly traced by hand to draw each individual tile outline, before being scanned and finished off with with colour fills and a superimposed pair of feet to simulate a real photograph of a tiled floor.”
