LAS VEGAS ("Menagerie")
Graffiti Tessellation Art by Rossi (Nick Sahli).
Colored pencil and ink on paper.
In this piece, Rossi really comes into his own.
There're gaps in the A and G, so this art does break the definition of a "tessellation", but there are so many other good things going on in this symmetry art. The use of animals shaped like letters makes this a particularly difficult, clever piece.
The emphasis of one "tile"-- one instance of "Las Vegas"-- above the others is not part of the original art.
The emphasis was added digitally by Seth Bareiss, webmaster of Tessellations.org
