Artist Zaria Forman paints these very realistic, and somewhat quite and soothing landscapes of Greenland. Prints for these pastel on paper drawings are available on Artstar, or you can get hold of the originals on Artsy.
Artist Linda Huber works with pencil to create stunningly realistic portraits that are not just excellent drawings, but the skill in shading makes them absolutely photorealistic. Each of these portraits and drawings is amazing, but what absolutely takes the cake is “The Face of David.” This view of the genius Michelangelo’s touch for the sculpture deserves love.
Japanese artist Shohei Otomo (previously) creates very detailed and intricate drawings using a medium as unlikely as a ball point pen. The first set of images you see here, those in blue, were made by the artist as part of an advertising campaign by Japanese stationary manufacturer Pilot. In the video that follows, the artist is seen moving the pen to create very intricate patterns that would ordinarily be considered out of the domain of a pen like that. The second set shows Otomo’s illustrations of ‘Furyo’ (Japanese delinquents), done fair and square with conventional ballpoint pens.
Nina Levy has two sons, who get a treat with their lunch everyday in the form of a conventional napkin being covered in fantastic art. The two boys often request what they would like to see on the napkins and Nina takes these commissions to create the lovely artistic lunch companions. This reminds us of the art of David LaFerriere, where he paints sandwich bags for the kids’ lunch.
We’re finding it incredibly hard to believe that these patterns and paintings come from nothing but ball point pens! These drawings by Shane McAdams are lovely, and very impressive in execution. Making ball point pens do your bidding this way is no easy task.
At just 18 years of age, Netherlands based artist Rajacenna makes the most stunning, realistic sketches, that we would call photographs if we hadn’t known any better. She took up drawing only in 2009 and found she was very adept to that, creating sketches so visually tasteful that detailed that these pencil drawings end up being nearly real.
It must be tough for artist Jim Denevan to spend time creating these geometric patterns, knowing they will be washed away by the water soon enough. Apparently, the artist is well aware of the fact that these drawings are temporary, and enjoys them that way. Most of these works are made on the beaches of northern California.
Shanghai-based designer Chris Hosmer creates impressive drawings using electrical tape.
Artist Paul Chojnowski‘s work impresses solely by the method the artist uses to create these amazing drawings. The artist works on wood, textiles and paper, and makes use of handheld torches and water to create these super amazing drawings. Paul dips watercolor paper in water, soaking each part to a different level of wetness. He then takes a torch to the wet paper so the paper gets slightly tinged or burnt.
