ben heine: pencil vs. camera

 

Here at Artpeople Gallery Belgian artist Ben Heine has gained recognition for his Pencil Vs Camera series, in which the clever illustrator superimposes a drawing on a sheet of torn paper over a real-life background.

Ben Heine busted out into the art  when his incredibly creative series, Pencil Vs Camera, captured the hearts and minds of people from all around the world.

“Pencil Vs Camera is all about illusion, dream, poetry, magic and simplicity,” says Heine. “The challenge is to create a 3D-like drawing on a piece of paper; the sketch should be connected with the photographic background but it should also say a little story by itself. I always try to give symbolic meaning to my drawings so that the message goes deeper than the photo alone. The combination of drawing and photography is really a powerful way to express ideas. There are no limits because everything is possible; every single illusion can be created on the paper.”
