Paul Chiappe’s Tiny Pencil Drawings Look Like Vintage Photographs

posted in: Style & Culture | 2

Bigger is not always better. Case in point — Paul Chiappe’s miniature graphite drawings that look just like vintage photographs. The super skilled Scottish artist recreates aged black and white photos incredibly realistic and ridiculously tiny, some are merely 2 x 4 cm. His life long attention to detail borderlines on obsession and each piece will make you think twice about what you are looking at. You can see more of his work on his website or you can see in person at TATE Modern’s Slow Looking: contemporary drawing, open through September.
