Some people will always seem to amaze me with their talents. Now I love decorating with maps and did 2 posts this year on them (see Sail Away, and Decorating with Maps). Today, I came across Matthew Cusick a talented artist from NYC who uses maps embedded into his paintings to create a mosaic piece of art. There is no paint on top of the maps, but the base medium is painted. The wave pictures are my favorite and some of the pictures you can not even tell maps are used until you look closely. I have so many questions: Where does he get the maps to use, how long does this take to create and I would love to see a photo of the map scraps all over his workspace. I would love to own one of the wave pictures.
