Mesmerizing performance drawings by artist and dancer Tony Orrico. He is a human spirograph,an artist, dancer, performing works for up to 4 hours continuously!

He creates remarkable large-scale mock-mathematical drawings with a savant’s focus and a marathoner’s endurance, sometimes drawing for up to four hours continuously, hitting our soft spot for the intersection of art and mathematics with delicious precision.
