Broken: Incredible Artworks by Graziano Locatelli. While I wouldn't have considered tiling to be an artistic grid, it is used to great effect in this image. I can't even imagine how the creator was able to break the tiles in such a way as to create the shading and lines to form the figure.
Artist Janet Echelman is currently embarking on her largest artwork ever, a 700-foot-long sculpture suspended over Vancouver.
