Creativity knows no bound, and for the imaginative few, the limit is the sky, sometimes even beyond. So much so for the painter, illustrator, portraitist, caricaturist and photographer – Ben Heine. Born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and currently living and working in Brussels, Belgium, Ben Heine studied graphic arts and sculpture and also has a degree in journalism.
A glimpse of his photographs/sketches from the collection Pencil vs Camera is set to make you stumble, surprise, love and laugh while appreciating this quality piece of creativity. He has a unique sense of lines and shades, and the way the pencil-made sketches are positioned on the camera photographs, the first idea is as if someone has looked inside the objects and then sketched the core. The fact that each sketch line coincides with the actual real detail is amazing, and so is the shading.
A must see for admirers of art, who are open to new areas of high decree of innovative creativity.
