Artist Spotlight: Marc Bühren’s 3D Pen Landscapes

Welcome to the visionary 3D art of Marc Bühren. Hailing from Germany, Marc is a 3Doodler pen master that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with 3D pen artwork. If you want to see Marc working in his studio and hear him discuss his art check out this behind-the-scenes video. His 3-dimensional installations, comprising tessellating geometric patterns and awe-inspiring imagery, are made by hand with the 3Doodler Create+.

From hanging trees that transport the viewer into abstract forests, to arrays of ocean fish and bird wings that open up the dimensions of nature, Marc’s installation art is truly magnificent to behold. We had a chance to connect with Marc to hear more about the exhibition.

"I worked on the artwork until the day the exhibition was set up. It was six months of hard work, but it was absolutely worth it!" Share

“At exhibitions, it is always very exciting how the visitors react to and interact with the artwork because the installations invite them to circle around, to kneel down or to stand on their tiptoes to catch more visual impressions. It is an exhilarating and emotional experience for me and for the visitors.”

Reflecting on this latest project, Marc noted that “Working with 3Doodler pens for the exhibition at the Maschinenhalle Scherlebeck Art Gallery was a big challenge for me. I had great ideas and have never worked with 3Doodler pens on this scale before.”
