If you liked the 3D street paintings by Leon Keer, you’ll love the work of Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki. Using notepads as a canvas and pencil and charcoal as drawing tools, Hideyuki creates playful 3D optical illusions which must be viewed from a certain angle in order to achieve the full effect.
Estonia-based artist Heikki Leis is well-known for his super realistic graphite drawings. The ones you see here are from his Everyday Reflections series that depict seemingly random individuals as they peer into mirrors performing mundane grooming activities, all rendered in painstaking detail with nothing but a pencil. So good! If you like Heikki Leis’s work, you might also check out the works by Sarah Esteje and Mark Powell.
