Nine years ago this week was my first public exhibition with a gallery, and the first ever photorealitic ballpoint art exhibition in history!
To be clear, I use the word photorealistic here. People had exhibited artworks done in ballpoint before my solo show in 2008 (Lennie Mace springs to mind) but I’m sure my photo/hyper realistic drawings in ballpoint were the first of their kind to ever be exhibited.
Now of course there are many photo realistic artists exhibiting worldwide and that’s great. A great site to keep up to date with how the movement is currently doing it’s thing is The Ballpointer.com
