Ambigrams

Symmetrical words

Ambigrams (Wikipedia) are symmetrical calligraphic creations, which can have several interpretations depending on the angle of view. Graphically, these words elicit a double reading and can sometimes be deciphered upside down (by rotating 180 degrees) or through a mirror (by axial symmetry).

Creation

The words I draw are mainly in French and English. Sometimes I work on proper names or logos.
My works have been published in calligraphy books, exhibited in art galleries, printed on t-shirts, tattoo-engraved and shared by European national newspapers. As gratifying as it was unexpected, the French Minister of Culture, Aurélie Filipetti, started following me on Twitter!
