Samuel Silva: A Ballpoint Wizard

Samuel Silva was born in Portugal and now lives in London; and he’s drop-dead amazing with a ballpoint pen. All of these pictures below were created using nothing but biro. According to Silva he started drawing with biros at school, but didn’t we all? He somehow went on to be pretty darned amazing at it. He’s skilled with other more standard mediums like chalk, pastels and paint but according to the blurb about him he’s currently mastering the biro, and do you know what? I think he’s managed it.

There’s not a lot I can add other than “WOW!” and that’s not going to be very interesting for you to read. So here’s a quote from the man himself:

It’s not about what you use, it’s about how you use it.


Here’s links to more of his stuff…
