pencil versus camera is an ongoing project by Belgian multidisciplinary artist Ben Heine. started in 2010, he says the idea of mixing drawing with photography was the result of “a long graphic exploration and a logic consequences of his artistic evolution.” the project usually focuses on architecture, portraits and animals, whilst the main themes are love and friendship.
Heine on his art: “i just make art for people. i want them to dream and forget their daily troubles. i used to write poems many years ago, i want to convey a poetic meaning into my pictures, each new creation should tell a story and generate an intense emotion, like a poem, like a melody.”
