A paradoxical paradox is that the word paradox might aswell is paradox in it self.
We proudly present our latest design to you ‘Paradox’. (concept & design by mao2017)
Can words be artful and mystic? I think they can. An interesting example is the word paradox. This is a beautiful word, word wise. The sum of the characters is visually attractive. If it was art, you could speak of a (Dutch term) ‘Droste effect’ or infinity effect. It is a reoccurring theme that spirals endlessly within itself. Like a riddle in a puzzle that’s a riddle in a puzzle. It contradicts and conflicts all the time without a releasing outcome.
“The liar’s paradox.”
“This statement is false.” If you think it’s true, then it must be false, but if you think it’s false, it must be true
Quote on quote: “Paradoxical statements may seem completely self-contradictory, but they can be used to reveal deeper truths.
The Oscar Wilde paradox “I can resist anything except temptation,”
Oscar Wilde used a paradox to point to our fundamental weakness to give in to tempting things (like chocolate or a pretty smile), all the while imagining that we can hold firm and resist them.”

The Russel Paradox
The man in the Artwearness promo is Bertrand Arthur William Russell (1872- 1970) was a British Philosopher and freethinker. The Russell Paradox, one of many paradoxes, is named after him. This paradox handles the question if the collection of all collections contains it self?
We the people are walking paradoxes all the time
Well maybe you don’t need all this information to be attracted to this cool design. But the paradox is that without it you probably wondered why I choose to design this specific print and what my motives were. Never mind, like it? You can purchase it @ www.artwearness.com.
