Graphic designer Christoph Niemann, who has developed a style of illustration based on rendering images in pixel-like squares, has posted on the New York Times about tiling his bathroom using everything from Titian to Beuys as inspiration.
A great read, and I love the handwritten style. Thanks to Julie Caniglia at the Walker for the tip-off.
