4 birds calligram series

series of 4 calligram birds for exhibition in Milan on Jan 2015

The bird series has been made for a collective exhibition titled "CLT" (Calligraphy, Typography, Lettering) at Spazio Porpora in Milan on Jan 2015.
It's the first time I use watercolor for background and colored Pentel Ink for letters.
Each bird has a quote in different languages, Italian, English, French and Spanish.
