Personalised Special Year Abstract Art Print

Customer Reviews

No reviews yet

A unique piece of abstract geometric art created using a very simple idea: replace numbers with colours. We use the four digits of a year to create the art. The colour for each number is shown at the bottom of the print. Check out the explanatory image in the gallery to see how we do it.

This minimalist print will appeal to anyone interested in computers, science or mathematics because they'll already be familiar with the idea of presenting numerical information in a visual way. It's a unique way to celebrate a special year, like a milestone birthday.

You'll enjoy watching people look at the print and the seeing their expression turn from puzzlement to delight when they realise that the print shows a year - it's a lot of fun and the 'code' is easy to crack!

  • anyone with a special year to celebrate - a milestone birthday, perhaps
