Memory

This type-based piece represents disconnect, dead ends and memories lost to brain disease. It is inspired by the loss of my grandfather to Alzheimer’s disease and was created as tribute to his memory. Take a close look to find a hidden word in this piece. What do you see?


About The Artist

Colin Nun is a Canadian artist working with text-based paintings. His work consists of carefully constructed typographic motifs deeply rooted in graphic design. Nun’s primary objective is to paint words that convey their meaning – simply put, to use words as imagery. He challenges how ‘normal’ letters and words are represented and questions what letterforms can become if pushed to their limits.
