Barcode Art With Bic Pens

Posted October 4, 2013

TheIt’s always interesting to see how barcodes make their way into or influence various type of artworks but “Ultraviolet -The Blue Carpet” by French artist Jonathan Bréchignac might me one of the most impressive. He hand drew this  2.5 ft × 4 ft design on paper using just blue Bic pens and Ultraviolet ink! It took  and took eight months to complete and will be showing  as part of the “The Blue Route” exhibition  from September 27, 2013 to February 9, 2014 at  at Villa Empain in Brussels. The intricacy, detail, and scope of the work is quite amazing. Each of the four QR Codes in the work take you to mysterious pages like this one. Hopefully we’ll end up seeing more great works from Bréchignac in the future!
