Paul Chiappe’s Extremely Small Drawings of Vintage Photographs

Extremely small Hyper-realistic(?) drawings from Edinburgh-based artist Paul Chiappe.Recreating graphite versions of early 20th century photography, the artist meticulously produces his works within tiny confines. Many of his drawings fall below the 4×4 cm. mark.



“Blind Virgin” Acrylic and collage on canvas,55×45 cm.

Skount adopts ample walls to introduce the full volume of his fantasy and his detail-loving hand to a broad audience that intentionally complements the sceneries within its own thoughts. His playful and enigmatic mural settings draw us out of day-to-day-life and transfer us into another world. Some of the figure’s garments are composed out of more than one dozen different fabrics what tells about Skount’s affection for decorative textures and shows his patience to translate his breezy ideas into the present by using adhesive spray paint.

Graphite drawings from the twisted mind of Eric Yahnker.

Eric Yahnker‘s first NYC solo show, Virgin Birth ‘N’ Turf, is being held at The Hole, the two-year-old Bowery space that picked up some of the pieces left when Jeffrey Deitch changed coasts. The show, which opens tomorrow night, is looking like quite the banger. Some HUGE (10 ft.) drawings will be on display in addition to sculptural and installation works. See more from Virgin Birth ‘N’ Turf after the jump, and if you’re looking to get even more hyped on the Los Angeles artist, watch our video interview with him from last year. – beautifuldecay
