Camiseteria’s Spider-Naut

Spider-naut by Zakeu Silva takes the familiar superhero to a very different place by turning him into an astronaut. He poses holding his helmet like he’s waiting for someone to take his picture, seemingly protected from the elements by his mask. Instead of a thing that protects him, the helmet reflects the universe in brilliant colors and seems to show what he is protecting. It’s a neat way of making something so large look small in comparison to a huge, looming human figure. The element that really makes this piece special, though, is how it treats the stars. Thin, nearly invisible lines crisscross between them to create a geometric structure that reminds me of both spider web and constellations. It’s an artistic touch that gives the design a unique look, and also leaves me imagining Spiderman swinging from star to star with his webbing.
