Samuel Silva is a self-taught artist who creates photorealistic pen drawings with a Bic ballpoint pen as his medium. We spotted a pos on Juxtapoz today featuring his work and had to share with our star seeds. Silva is from portugal and started out drawing his own sketches in school ( like most of us) his love for art began when he was two. He works with other mediums as well but only shares his pen drawings on his DeviantArt site check out some of our favorites and the link to more of his stuff!
“It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further.“
“Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium.”
“It’s not about what you use, it’s about how you use it.”
