Street artists like Banksy and Space Invader have been playing with city dwellers for years, placing their work strategically for maximum impact. In fact, artists around the globe are constantly integrating their artwork into the landscape in unexpected ways. Working in large and small scale, the techniques and scope of work differ, but one thing they all have in common is their clever use of space.
Italy-based artist Diego Fazio, better known as DiegoKoi, is bound to blow you away with his incredible drawing skills. One of his newer pieces titled Sensazioni is an unbelievably hyperrealistic pencil drawing of a woman that has caused people to question the truth of its medium. Is it really done in pencil? The answer is an impressively resounding “Yes!”
We often come across talented artists who use unconventional means to create realistic works of art and are bombarded with accusations of foul play but DiegoKoi quickly put the claims to rest, thanks to his wise decision to track his progress. Taking approximately 200 hours to complete the jaw-dropping photorealistic illustration, the artist kept visual record of several stages of its development.
