Fine Art Friday: Michael Shall

I will forever be impressed with the incredible investemnt of time and skill that artists who choose to work in graphite pencils can render. The recent work of Brooklyn-based artist Michael Shall continues this legacy by creating complex and heavily-detailed drawings that look like photographs at first glance. However, he does not draw from photographs but uses images to "gain an understanding of how certain things are structured." He creates these worlds that seem like an industrial abandoned landscape, but make the viewer stare in awe at the intense details of these other-worldly spaces. Check out his site HERE and recognize the results of challenging yourself to maximize your skills.
