About The Work

Cityscapes and architectural monuments are the subjects of Ewan Gibbs’ unique and systematic visual medium. Using a series of personalized shorthand characters based on knitting patterns, Gibbs builds his striking scenes like an impressionist painter, one “stroke” of visual code at a time. This somber and meticulous graphite drawing, Arlington, presents Arlington National Cemetery as an opaquely surreal landscape. Like a vision from faded memory, the iconic military cemetery—which is the burial site of John F. Kennedy, William Howard Taft and countless other military and political figures—is the subject of Gibbs’ painstaking artistic process.
