Original art print of "Alphabet Extrusion" by artist Candela De Bortoli. Candela De Bortoli is an architect and a graphic artist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is passionate about all things graphic, particularly graphic design, illustration and photography, which are incorporated up to certain extent in each poster. The artist draws inspiration from her own travels, places she’s been or buildings she got the chance to visit. Her latest work is experimental and intuitive, as she tries to create minimal and geometric posters that can convey a particular space. All posters are created digitally using Adobe software.

This Is the compilation of the artists' Alphabet Extrusion series, created in 2020 as a direct result of isolation. Reflexing on the relationship between form, meaning and language, the artist explores a series of 12 alphabets, familiar and unfamiliar to the author, currently being used or dead: Modern Latn, Traditional Chinese, Ancient Runes, Russian, Arabic, Greek, Thai, Ancient Latin and Korean. Each character is abstracted of its meaning and arranged in a non-uniform matrix. When possible, all characters are used. Sometimes, only the most common ones are extruded. This work is a reflexion on the power of form as meaning across different cultures and how shapes can tell us something about each language's personality.
