YouTangle.art - The creative break for everyday!
Draw your way to peace and serenity with our YouTangle.art cards! For the creative break Hahnemühle now offers tangle cards - also called tiles - in a stylish metal box. Each box contains 25 cards of the perfect paper for the trendy, meditative drawing. The square tiles with rounded edges allow smooth, precise lines with fineliners and pencils. Tangle artists also use coloured pencils, gel and brush pens and also ink markers.
The 9x9 cm cards are offered by Hahnemühle in a handy storage, metal box. The cards - painted or unpainted- are held in a treasure box and are easy to carry. With YouTangle.art you can draw anywhere at any time with a couple of pens. Just give it a try!
What is 'Tangle'?
To tangle usually means to draw easy or abstract motifs and patterns again and again. In the repetition lays the meditative potential of this kind of art. This does not mean that drawing tangles is only for creatively inclined people. Everyone can tangle! Tangle motifs live on - not necessarily quite exact - repeating a pattern which makes them appear alive and handmade. The original pattern can be found outdoors or developed from imagination. Memories of a floral motif, or the views of paving stones in the garden can lead to great ideas. Tangled patterns were brought to life through the clear black and white contrast or thrifty colorations. For tangling the theorem applies "What goes through the hand, goes in the head." The repetitions in drawing the patterns lead to a holistic relaxation that is felt as a 'flow': In doing without thinking, to weigh and to plan the results lays the meditative force. Tangling becomes intuitive, once you've begun.
For your creativity to flow!
The YouTangle.art tiles by Hahnemühle are small invitations to tangle. The size is not overwhelming - finish even a small work of art in a shirt time frame.
We have asked the artists Virginia Romo and Matthias Hennig to test our new YouTangle.art cards. The first artist-illustrator conclusion of Virginia Romo says it all: "Caution, tangling with Hahnemühle YouTangle.art cards is addictive. I love floral and folkloristic motives!."
Designer Matthias Hennig is a "pattern expert" and therefore for us the ideal tester for YouTangle-art: "The cards have a beautiful, handy format. Thanks to the rounded corners is little risk that form 'donkey ears' when you handle the cards. They also act by even without framing as 'finished objects'."
A tangle-work in progress:
- From a simple shape. It can be developed from a line, a point, a circle, a squiggle or an oval.
- Lines forming boundaries, in which a pattern is inserted. Curvy lines and flourishes give the individual design structure. Sketched, simple, abstract forms share a tangle in areas and outline patterns.
- A square frame on the YouTangle.art tile acts like a picture frame. A ruler is not needed for this purpose. The frame lines are simple sketches out of the wrist.
