Edith Beurskens’ 3d printed and handpainted designs
Freelance artist, graphic and interior designer Edith Beurskens is creating pieces of art made decidedly for the home. The visual creative, based close to Amsterdam, discovered 3D printing when moving into her own home. Her need to create pieces during the building process led to her using the medium creatively, inspiring her to make wall art for her own home. Soon she was creating “design puzzles”—homemade 3D art made from plant-based material PLA and painted by hand.
The pieces, a minimalist palette of browns, taupes, greens, and creams, do feel like puzzles, with three-dimensional cut shapes, interlocking forms, and patterns that seem to fit together in unexpected ways. The layers and hand-painted forms make for unique and one-of-a-kind artistry, adding dimension and textures to walls and spaces. It creates depth and structure, even in spaces where there is none.
