Shape transition and make a layout for the pattern based on a motif from Middle East area or known as Timur Tengah in Bahasa Indonesia. There is no shape change, only the layout that changes on each layer.
In this Cupo-Basmalah, the concept combines the art of calligraphy with some layer of papercutting and combine with color gradation for each layer.
This is my first artwork for Cupo. The idea is simple. Create layered ellipses with different color gradation for each ellipse. We made it on 15 September 2013.
