Playful images merge reality and fiction

Always playful, often inspirational, Ben Heine’s “PENCIL VS CAMERA” series merges reality and imagination. By overlaying black and white pencil sketches atop photographs, Heine is able to add a personal twist to each real-life setting. Inversely, with larger work, Heine inserts individuals, often himself, into the drawings.

This Brussels-based artist’s care to create cohesive alignments and perspectives within his images contributes to the convincing-ness of his visual narrations. Heine often includes his hand in each image, connecting the artist to the work, as well as the viewer. In one exhibition, Heine set a giant illustration, featuring himself snapping a picture, on the floor so that viewers could sit down and take their own photos of Heine’s self-portrait taking their portrait.
