Beautiful colour pencil art by Marco Mazzoni

You may associate colour pencils with childhood doodles adorning refrigerators. But Italian artist Marco Mazzoni shows the true potential of this under-appreciated medium. Drawing inspiration from Italian folklore, this Milan-based artist depicts nature with a dark, dreamlike twist, without a paintbrush in sight. Time to buy some classy magnets, I’d say.
