Realistic Pen Drawings By Alessandro Paglia

Using thin technical black ink pens on paper, Alessandro Paglia produces large scale realistic drawings of iconic design pieces ‘as a tribute to their elegance and personality’.

‘I always loved the power depth and elegance of black and white. The use of ink unlike graphite, for example, allows getting a very intense black and strong contrast giving the illustrations a unique expressive power. I draw illustrations and comics in black and white since I was a child now I discovered the charm and impact of large format combined with an original technique.’

Alessandro explains the simple yet meticulous process of his work:

‘I choose and photograph the subject, I draw the outlines in pencil and then meticulously reproduce it with thin technical black ink pens on rough grain paper laying layers of ink in a repeating pattern of little circles. The result is a refined artwork with a strong individuality both hyper realistic and vibrant in a unique way.’

All of Paglia’s pen drawings are original, handmade and one-of-a-kind pieces that can take 50 to 250 hours to be completed. See below a small selection of his creations and follow him on Instagram for more.
