to add to my ideas collection is this incredible scottish artist, Paul Cadden, he is dubbed the hyperrealist artist due to his astonishing ability to recreate photographs using only graphite, it is truly astounding... you will have to take a second look! he creates such life-like wrinkles on people's faces, a puff of smoke and even dripping water, he is just amazing. unsurprisingly he was shortlisted for artist of year 2011, have a look at his work and there is no doubt as to why!
p.s thank you so much dad for sending me this! :) x
