Kris is a self taught professional pen artist currently based in Brisbane, Australia.
Pen and paper are his only materials. But with this Kris is able to create very unique, photorealistic, black and white drawings with the use of 0.1 unipin pens.
Kris's creative process begins with the selection of a photograph, many of which he takes himself. He chooses his images not only based on their composition but also because of the story that resonates behind them. Each piece uses over two dozen pens, a very unforgiving medium, there is no erasing or changing.
His technique is rare, soft in texture and appearance. His attention to detail and perfectionist nature stems back to his early years studying a double major in architecture and interior design and having to produce accurate and large scale drawings. Since returning from travels just over a year ago and having a fresh perspective on life, Kris has chosen to dedicate himself to a career as an artist.
