Artist Tristan Klein is making a splash in the art world with his hyper realistic drawings. He has been drawn towards the beauty of realism through artists such as Chuck Close and Regis Ormond. Their mesmerizingly realistic drawings have lead him down a similar path.
Through the mediums of charcoal, ink and graphite, Tristan's work is prized for its highly achieved level of detail and contrast spending anywhere from 10-50 hours on a single piece.
He has been commissioned work from all around the world, featured in local art galleries, and on many websites. The young artist (now 20) was named as one of the "20 Best Artists Under 20" by Complex Magazine.
