One of the biggest strengths of an artist is being able to see the world in a different light and to bring their vision into reality.
Painters do it with brushes and a canvas. Musicians do it with instruments. But for a special artist in Korea, his medium of art comes in the form of a 3D filament pen.
Known only by his YouTube channel 3D SANAGO, this artist expresses his art using 3D filament pens. While most of his project are done in the comfort of his own home, he sometimes goes outside to fill out dilapidated public spaces with his art.
Recently, our artist was commissioned by the city of Daejeon to work his 3D filament magic on a couple of broken segments in an old provincial office. And when I say “old”, I really mean OLD. This building was built back sometime during the Japanese occupation of Korea from 1910-1945. Armed with his iconic orange suitcase filled with his pen, filaments, and… a stuffed giraffe, he gets to work on adding some modern flavor to this ancient building.
The two main segments he works on in this video are a couple of broken bricks located just a few feet above a normal human’s reach. He employs the use of a ladder to get to them and we soon see the use of the stuffed giraffe- it’s for keeping his bottom comfy while he works on the building!
As soon as he’s nice and comfortable, our artist starts filling in the missing segments with his 3D filament pen. Just like his other public “restoration” projects, he traces the outline of the broken segments first. This not only provides a solid base for him to work on, but it allows the filament to stick to the building while it’s still hot (plus, y’ know… adding filament to a flat surface is way easier than suspending it over open-air).
Upon finishing his first attempts at filling out the two spaces, he notices that he really doesn’t like the red color or the way they turned out. He removes these initial fillings and starts anew with some blue filament.
