Amazing Algorithmically-Generated CMYK Line Portraits

Samer Dabra, a visual and generative artist, creates algorithmically-generated CMYK portraits using an AxiDraw v3 pen plotter.

One by one, the colors are added to the machine, which uses them to draw one layer of a portrait at a time. The portraits are automatically generated with code, and Dabra is the software engineer behind all this.
