Miniaturist graphite drawings by Jason D’Aquino

Jason D’Aquino refers to himself as a miniaturist and no one can doubt that when you see the size of his detailed graphite drawings of icons of pop culture, common objects, and his own creations that are only a inch or so in size which he creates with high powered magnifiers. He chooses to work on found surfaces such as strike-on-front matchbooks, 18th century animal-skin vellum, and antique ledger pages. His search for these found ‘canvases’ has led him to strange corners of the world and to some unique treasures. He recently unearthed a hand-quilled, illustrated whaling manuscript from St. Petersburg Russia, which made its way to Christies Auction House in New York City.

About the author

A love of traveling, art, and denim saw this Brit native mix them all up. The result was art crafted from denim and a new home in Sweden. Even though he once lived in Australia and never rode a wave, Denimu is only slightly better with a keyboard and likes to write about the things he has seen on his travels and the people he meets along the way.
