We love one-of-a-kind personal art, so when we stumbled upon Kyle Bean’s Pencil Shaving Portraits via design milk we had to share:
British artist Kyle Bean, best known for his intricate sculptures made out of unusual materials, has created a series of portraits from colored pencil shavings for the contributors page of Wallpaper* Handmade 2011.
The only reference point for these delicate creations were photographs of the subjects—all of whom are fellow contributors to Wallpaper* magazine.
Twenty-four year-old Kyle specializes in hand-crafted models, set design and art direction. Since graduating in 2009, he has worked across a variety of platforms including installations, window displays, editorial and advertising.
We can’t wait to see what he creates next!
