Abstract Tangram Map of the World. The Tangram is a Chinese dissection puzzle, consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes using all seven pieces, which may not overlap. The pieces consist of 2 large triangles, 1 medium triangle, 2 mall triangles, 1 square and 1 parallelogram, which when put together can form a perfect square. As well as forming specific shapes, a popular use of Tangrams is to create silhouettes of objects, such as animals, or people. In this world map, each country has been formed in this method with the seven individual pieces. Whilst there are no rules about the orientation of the individual tans in a Tangram, I have stuck to using just 0, 45 and 90 degree rotations.
Art and design has interested me since an early age, so much so that art class was the one lesson at school i genuinely looked forward to every week. After school and university I had the fortune to be able continue my passion, working as a senior designer at Conde Nast Publications in London. After an exhilarating 12 years I bid farewell to my job and England, and moved a couple of thousand miles south to Spain. I now dedicate myself full time to my artistic pursuits in the tranquil and idyllic surroundings of a Mediterranean coastal village. All artwork is copyright of Michael Tompsett.
