Ridiculously detailed spray-paint and stencil portraits by Kris Trappeniers... I just discovered the work of Belgium-based Kris Trappeniers who describes himself as a “paper sculptor”. His delicately cut stencils are among the most complex I’ve ever seen, the twisting, curving line work creating these amazing portraits that are unbelievably finished with spraypaint. The Incredibly Detailed Drawings of Manabu Ikeda The pen-and-ink drawings of Manabu Ikeda are enormous in both size and detail. Working on paper canvases several meters in size, the Japanese artist spends up to two years on a single one of his masterpieces, never knowing what they are going to look like until they are finished. Manabu Ikeda begins work on his monumental artworks by sketching some images in his sketchbook as they pop into his head. He is always thinking about his art and sometimes sees images when he is doing the most mundane things, like having dinner with his friends. His drawing are a combination of the things that inspire him, from nature and history to technological advancements and catastrophic events like earthquakes or tsunamis. Although he has an idea of what he wants to lay down on paper when he starts to draw, a lot of time he just uses the images that flash in his mind as he is working, and the end result is a big mystery until the final stages of the drawing process.
