Today we add another awesome artist to this long list. His work is so unique not only on the subject and artistic style but most especially in his use of ink tea and alcohol.
Meet Carne Griffiths, UK-based artist who creates amazing portraits using calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids such as tea, brandy and vodka. His fascination with drawing is focused on the manipulation of the drawn line creating human, geometrical and floral forms as a literal or abstract interpretations of images encountered from his daily life.
