Truly a master of pencil drawings! @kelvinokafor_art just blows us away with every single piece… and the combination of his art with the stunning @winnieharlow is simply EVERYTHING!
Kelvin shares: “In the process of putting pencil to paper, I begin by drawing in sections/stages. Since I was a child, I have always created drawings this way. I visually dissect facial features – I study them and then I put them back together like pieces in a puzzle. This method of creating helps me understand expressions and also helps me appreciate the lengthy process each portrait drawing takes.”
“I try to express my anxious and lonely emotions on behalf of various characters. As I did, the portraits expressed in that way always stare at the world quietly as if they were tired of a fairytale-like reality, containing incomplete, anxious, and unknown sadness.”
A surreal watercolor portrait by @bj00100… I just can't get enough from pieces with both intricate figurative and expressive, abstract elements. Ko Byung Jun’s feed is the right playground for this passion!

"In school, I learned to paint in an order – from the large, general areas to the specific details, completing the painting with the smallest brushes. Now, I use the opposite formula while painting. I start with small brushes, creating details the entire time. Then I start using the big ones, playing with the colours and the atmosphere of the piece, that's my favourite part of the process. You may even think that I'm covering the whole painting; it may look like I'm destroying it, but I know that I'm actually giving life to it. The scary part is that you have to plan it with order, otherwise you ruin it, but I guess that's the exciting part." "

Throwback to January and @afarinsajedi’s ‘Monsieur’. Afarin paints clownesque and theatrical figures with a “usually royal, proud, and silent” gaze straight toward the viewers.
Can you identify the repeating element in her portraits? Let us know in the comment section! 🤓
“I investigate the ancestral myths and stories that build a new look and perspective on the feminine.”
I am absolutely in love with the work of @ltg.art! The artist’s dotwork creates such delicate shadows! What an interesting contrast to the dark space she places her figures in (but at the same time a connection to the stars in the background)!
