Inspirational Artist Feature – Ebon Heath

Designer and sculptor Ebon Heath brings a new twist to typography. Add a touch of performance art and his type work truly comes alive. I love the contrast he creates between positive and negative space in each piece. In that respect, his kinetic sculpture installations remind me a bit of Calder’s work. I also find it interesting which words a phrases he chooses to highlight in each piece, telling a story from both the visual and the textual aspect. Ebon lives and works between Brooklyn, Berlin and Bali.
