This Artist Created 19 Brilliant Calligrams That Show the Visual Meaning of Words

Posted on Sep 13, 2016

An imaginative artist started creating these minimalistic, clever calligrams years ago.

He started doing it as a class assignment and ended up making a hobby out of it. He sees a word, imagines what it means, and tries to make a drawing and font that represents the meaning. Amazing, right? Take a look at these to see how good Ji Lee is. He even published them in a book entitled 'Word as Image.'

These simple drawings are quite intelligent and the idea is very creative. Enjoy these amazing calligrams.
