About the Book

"With an artistic mindset, we don’t always draw what we can’t see. And because we don’t draw it, we can’t fully understand it." - Kurt Ofer
To challenge this restricted outlook, architect Kurt Ofer has formulated an utterly unique way of drawing, which gives a superior understanding of form. By following the method of “transparent drawing,” you ignore an object’s opacity and see beyond its surface, allowing you to draw it in a very distinct and holistic way. This allows us to fully see and understand the object, and brings unimaginable results. Transparent Drawing will appeal to anyone who has ever picked up a pencil and made marks on a piece of paper. The book questions why we draw, but it is not a book on how to draw. It is clear that through Ofer’s detailed exploration of various drawing movements through history, taking into account prominent thinkers and philosophers, the purpose of the book is not only to advance a new mode of drawing, but to enrich readers with a knowledge, which gives a previously inconceivable outcome when put into practice.
