Mesmerizing Marker Installations by Heike Weber
If you liked the marker-drawn murals by Charlotte Mann as a way to decorate your room, you’ll also love this like-minded German artist Heike Weber. Based in Cologne, she uses permanent markers to create mesmerizing floor and wall drawings which sometimes cover up to 5000 square ft.
By carefully planning and controlling the white spaces between each line, Heike gives her drawings a 3D feeling. The space around the viewer may seem to be constantly swirling and floating, and you might find yourself losing the ground under your feet. This is probably why one of her latest installations in a cafe in Prague is called ‘bodenlos’ which means “bottomless”.
Besides her meticulous marker drawings, Heike also applies various linear techniques to her paper works and also does photography, sculpture and object creation.
