    Question looking for some dynamic black and white/ink patterns or abstracty sort of art

    a friend of mine asked me to point him towards some art/artists who do this sort of stuff




    not necessarily strict patterns, but not necessarily escher. just alot of movement and usage of space.

    i did a little bit of googling but all i could really yield was very highschool "draw on my binder" type stuff.

    i know i've come across artists who do alot of great stuff with line weight and movement and obsessive-compulsive patterning but never really bookmarked it.

    any help?

    I'm not sure how abstract you need it, but Harry Clarke uses a lot of heavy patterning in his work. Nocloo has nearly all his work uploaded.

    I could generate some fractal images and then pass them through a transformation to "two color" for you. It would probably only take about five minutes per image.

    Maybe you can do it yourself.

    Aubrey Beardsley is awesome inspiration, especially when it comes to black and white and pattern.

    I think that most black and white / Ink artists create similar patterns within their work unintentionally. I'm particularly infatuated by Dore's hatching patterns...
