Diego Fazio's Photorealistic Pencil Drawings

Diego Fazio aka DiegoKoi is 22-year old photorealism artist. Diego was born in Czech Republic, now he resides in Italy. Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai, Diego started his career as a tattoo artist, ending up creating own pencil and chalk drawing technique. What’s more exciting is that Diego draws like an ink printer, starting from top left corner of canvas. Diego uses only pencils and chalks. He spends around 200 hours on each painting. He won the NonfermArti Audience Award for Best Artist in 2011. You can easily confuse Diego’s paintings with black-and-white photographs, so no wonder, lots of skeptics doubt authenticity of his works.
