World map | Rust with peeling white paint

WereldkaartenShop Profile picture This rugged world map is a fusion of a photo image of a corroded piece of metal and painting in watercolor on a fiber-rich watercolor paper.

For this world map I went out especially to photograph rust. For this I went to Heijplaat in Rotterdam near the Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij ( RDM ). My grandparents lived in heijplaat and it seemed interesting to me to visit this cool area after a long time and specifically look for corroded steel along the quay and in the industrial area of RDM.

The rust I used in this work of art came from a large pillar of a jetty on the Boardwalk. The metal was heavily corroded and the white paint was already peeling off. This structure gives the sculpture an extra rugged look.

The black background is also homemade and consists of a fiber-rich cotton watercolor paper on which I have painted with black watercolors using the wet-on-wet technique. The paint has a nice granulation that gives it a rough appearance. I then digitally brought all the elements together and edited them into one.

In short, a special world map for those who love metallurgy and a rough Grunge look in the interior such as in the living room, bedroom, kitchen, home office or reception hall.

This artwork is offered by WereldkaartenShop

WorldMapsShop is a creative design studio where artistic cartographic illustrations and paintings are created by designer and painter Ricardo Bouman.
In his studio, he works with both analogue mediums 'such as paints and inks' and digital mediums, such as 'modern line drawings and typographic designs' illustrated manually on the computer or drawing tablet.

WorldCardsShop devises unique cartographic concepts and stands for high artistic and graphic quality. All maps are made in the traditional way. In other words, 'handmade' and with passion for illustration, painting, typography and the graphic profession. WorldCardsShop therefore does not use artificial intelligence (Ai).

All maps are digitised in high resolution. This also makes it possible to order large wall-filling art prints 'such as Art-Frame and Seamless Wallpaper'.
