Self-taught artist Fernando Barrientos had always been fascinated by the illusionary aspect of photorealistic artworks - so, a few years ago, he decided to create his own. His hyperrealistic drawings are made with colored pencils on cotton paper and he approaches every new drawing as a challenge to learn more about the connection between the dimensions, depth and colors of his subject. His choice of subject is dependent on what he feels drawn to at the time; often, he employs his exceptional skill to magnify a smaller object, to ‘zoom in’ and recreate it on a much larger scale.

Barrientos currently resides in Washington DC, where he creates his artworks and attends University.
