Drawings By Daniele De Batté

I’d like to think of these drawings by Daniele De Batté as a modern day Rorschach test.  In this version, inkblots are replaced with the Italian designer’s graphic and playful minimalist work in pen, some of which was created in collaboration with Artiva Design.  The artist says: “What interests me the most is the balance of white spaces. The absence of colour is a precious bound which doesn’t enrich the work but it reveals the essential shape.  This is a rule that helps to keep the counterpoint between order and chaos, a tension that creates energy.”
