Biro Portraits


One of my favourite artists, Jacob Everett’s portraits never fail to draw me in. He distinctively creates large scale portraits using solely a biro pen. By using overlapping marks it gradually builds facial contours which close up appear as thousands of tiny pixels which really absorb you into the stunning piece. Everett has produced portraits for many famous faces such as Wayne Rooney, Biggie Smalls and Dave Grohl. His most recent project features portraits of homeless subjects; drawn to document the lives of people who would otherwise be overlooked. The portraits will be on display from tomorrow at Urban Outfitters in Brighton, with the main exhibition taking place in Harrogate in November.
