Hyperrealistic Portraits Using Only a Pencil

Written by

 

Diego Fazio aka DiegoKoi is an Italian artist from the town of Lamezia. Born in 1989, the self-taught illustrator first started as a tatoo artist and says he was initially inspired by the artwork of Katsushika Hokusai, a highly influential Japanese artist from the Edo period.

Diego only began drawing in 2007, yet his hyperrealistic pencil drawings on paper and wood have garnered him international acclaim. Each portrait can take up to 200 hours but the results speak for themselves. At only 23-years of age, the future is bright for this rising star. Be sure to keep up with his latest artwork at the links below.
