Audrey Hepburn as you've never seen her before: Bic biro artist creates 'Vintage Vogue' images for new exhibition
著名藝術家James Mylne 正在為最新的作品展“復古時尚”進行繪畫創作。此作品展的主題是懷舊復古，創作一些40,50 和60年代流行的時尚風格。作品主要由圓珠筆進行構圖和繪畫，每一副畫都要花費將近100個小時去完成，只要畫錯了一個地方，都要重新來過。James Mylne畢業于倫敦藝術大學坎伯韋爾藝術學院，開創了BIC圓珠筆繪畫的先鋒，他想通過這些作品去紀念老一輩的時尚精神，本次展覽會在十月末的倫敦Soho中心區Rook & Raven 畫廊中展出。
James Mylne 和他的作品
At first glance they look like beautifully painted canvases, but this glamorous set of images are actually created using Bic biros - defying their audiences.
Leading artist James Mylne has painstakingly reworked a series of photos of
The classic style of the Golden Era has been captured in his Vintage Vogue collection, which also features model Everyln Tripp, a classic Coco Chanel advert and the dangerously cool Steve McQueen.
Each stunning image takes up to 100 hours to create, and if a single mistake is made it cannot be rectified, meaning Mylne must start the intricate process all over again.
The leading creates his realistic images using a mix of modern media alongside Bic biros, including marker pens and spray paints to add colour.
He pioneered BIC biro drawing 15 years ago after graduating from Camberwell College of Arts with an MA, and is now regularly studied by students keen to emulate his style.
Talking about his latest exhibition he said: 'There is a genuine serenity in the poise and personality of models and actresses from the early to mid 20th century, that I wanted to capture in this latest collection of work and bring back into ‘the now.'
'With today’s overbearing pressure on models’ appearance and over photo-shopped images, it is worth remembering how effortless style and elegance was achieved so naturally many decades ago.' The use of BIC biro as Mylne's primary medium appealed to him due to the huge level of concentration required to complete each drawing.
An image of Audrey Hepburn wearing a white hat took him 100 hours to complete, while another of the actress wearing sunglasses and a pearl necklace took 90 hours sketch.
Mr Mylne is considered a world leader in his style of art, and in the past had replicated iconic photos of entertainers and artists such as Twiggy, Sean Connery and Jean Michel Basquiat.
His popular work has attracted a strong celebrity following, with model Daisy Lowe and record producer Tali Lennox among his fans. His latest exhibition will run until the end of October at Rook & Raven Galleryin the heart of Soho,
