Scottish artist Paul Cadden crafts meticulous hyper-realistic portraits from pencil and graphite. Of his art, he says: ‘The art created from the photo is used to create a softer and much more complex focus on the subject depicted, presenting it as a living tangible object’. Indeed, if you didn’t know better, you’d swear they were photographs. But they’re not. Remarkable.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
