This is not a photo. Art appreciation

Recommended Posts

Just read an article on an artist named Samuel Silva.

 

Although he uses may mediums the article focused on his ballpoint pen artwork. Thats right, the same ballpoint pens you buy at the newsagent.

 

I have included a couple of samples of his work as well as a link to the original article, but I would like you all to not only comment but post some of your favorite artwork.

Amazing

 

and yes, all of these works are amazing, the time it would take to get the definition using a ballpoint is ridiculous.

if you go to his site he said it took something like four pens just to do the background. It's pretty much photorealistic

I think that artist might be lying then. I don't think you can get that kind of color and tones with ballpoint pens.

 

Looks like he used acrylics or oils to me.

 

Either way it's still great work.

At first I thought the same thing, but after reading up on the artist, I think It's legit.

 

Having never seen the work in person, having never seen anything comparable, I can't be sure, But as you said either way it's fantastic work

So in keeping with the theme I found another artist that uses the ballpoint pen as a medium

 

Juan Francisco Casas Ruiz
