Ben Heine is a multidisciplinary artist for Belgium. This Talented artist combines coloured photographs with simple black and white pencil drawings. Lots of other artworks can be found in his official web page.
Heine’s “Pencil vs Camera” artwork is so far his most widely published work. The idea of mixing drawing with photography came to him in 2010. Heine says it was the result of a long graphic exploration and a logic consequences of his artistic evolution. Artist’s works contain lots of surrealistic details. The beauty of Heine’s project is displayed in contrast between usual, colourful reality and amazing but not coloured drawing. The main idea is best described by author’s words:
“I just make art for people. I want them to dream and forget their daily troubles. I used to write poems many years ago, I want to convey a poetic meaning into my pictures, each new creation should tell a story and generate an intense emotion, like a poem, like a melody”.
