“500 – 700 pencils died in the process of making these works”

A lot of people talk about quitting their job to chase dreams. Sergio quit his job at NwhyC, moved upstate NY and is a full-time artist. Working entirely with graphite on canvas, the magnitude of his pieces are incredible. Finding influence from religion, using size and magnitude to convey power. His pieces perfectly convey a time when religion was unbelievably powerful. The clergymen have a stern, judgmental, look of almost disgust. The faces have layers of unbelievable texture, so much attention to detail. Sergio also works with bone structure, creating abstract images morphing skulls together. He is a master of his craft, an expert with a pencil.

1 week in, cruise control, windows are rolled down, the unknown impulse to keep going. listen to it. #NewWork ✏️
