Art – line illustrations

We joined Maple Class this afternoon who were looking at the work of Brazilian artist Ninhol. Ninhol specializes in creating line illustrations, both in colour and in black and white, revealing the beauty to be found in simplicity. Initially, Ninhols work was influenced by the culture and his personal experiences in his hometown. Over time, traveling and living in different regions of the country allowed Ninhol to see the multiplicity of aspects that compose the Brazilian culture and as his talents evolved, so did his work.

Although the artist has created many beautiful pieces, today the children were looking at one in particular, which is a line drawing of a face using charcoal.

We took some pictures of the children’s work, which can be seen in the gallery below. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
