The Word Art of Juan Osborne

By WebdesignerDepot Staff Posted Nov. 29, 2010 Reading time: 1 minute

“A picture is worth a thousand words’. We’re sure you’ve heard this expression a million times before, but you probably have not quite ‘seen’ it yet…

Juan Osborne is a Spanish architect and designer, that has literally taken this expression and created stunning art with this concept. His amazing compositions are made up of words,  literally thousands of words!

He starts his process by collecting words from books, speeches, movies and recreates photographs and painting using these words laid out in a way so that they form the picture.

Just like with tags on blogs, the more repetition he encounters for each keyword, the bigger it appears in the final composition.

In this post, we’ve compiled some of his more unique works, which include classics such as “The Scream” to more contemporary visualizations for a character on the TV show “Lost” and even Obama speeches.
