Visual designer and illustrator: Charis Chevis

While I was trying to discover some Greek designers I stumbled upon an visual artist and designer; Charis Tsevis, who makes unusual mosaic images. The reason I describe his art as unusual is because his pictures comprise of endless tiny pictures, which as an end result produce a face – mostly a recognisable one. His work became especially popular after the portrait he did of Steve Jobs featuring thousands of pictures of Apple products.
