This is a portrait I made of Abraham Lincoln’s face using a Scrabble board game and following the official rules used in Scrabble tournaments in order to do it. It’s also a reference to a painting by surrealist artist, Salvador Dali.

He says he’s working on this piece for an upcoming show, and the idea came from the Dali painting “Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea Which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln (Homage to Rothko).”
