Impossibly Real, Impossibly Beautiful Hand Drawn Portraits by Antonio Finelli

Self Portrait, 2012 Pencil on Paper by Antonio Finelli

Antonio Finelli is a professional artist who splits his time between Rome and Campobasso, Italy.  His work is photorealistic pencil drawing, usually portraits.  The result is amazing.  Deeply textured and realized faces seem to jump off the page as the individuals would begin to talk to you, as if they were in the middle of a conversation with you in fact.  These are more than mere copies.  To see more of Antonio Finelli’s work visit his website HERE or follow his Twitter feed HERE.

I would know your face
In winter’s deepest blizzard
Your eyes never change
