What comes to mind when you think of graphite? Is it the stains that stay on your fingers, or the beautiful gradients that can result from simply playing with pressure? Through skilfully applied smudges and smears, the humble pencil is capable of expressing minute details and textures in myriad shades of grey, creating layered universes that draw viewers into their folds.
From the fine and crisp work produced with an H-grade to the fuzzier, ink-like impressions by the B end, GRAPHITE: H to B of Contemporary Pencil Art & Drawings collates some of the most stunning, hand-drawn contemporary pencil art across the lead spectrum, along with exclusive interviews with renowned pencil artists Amandine Urruty, Armando Veve, and Dukhoon Gim. Step into an enigmatic world of monochrome chronicling a unique perspective or story on every page, brought to life by 28 artists and illustrators from around the globe.
