Hyper-Realistic Graphite Drawings by Brian Boulton
Vancouver-based artist Brian Boulton creates highly detailed graphite drawings of anonymous subjects and their daily routine.
“Based on digital photos, these solitary figures face away from the viewer and are removed from their urban environment. The subtle difference in the texture of fabrics work together to construct a portrait of these anonymous individuals. These details are rendered delicately in graphite by the artist.
Brian sees his drawings as a neutral documentation of a subject which becomes a collaboration with the viewer as they participate by projecting both personality and history on the subjects.”Art Illustration Posted on July 24, 2012
