Inspirational optical illusion Art by Ben Heine

Here’s an incredible optical illusion pencil drawings pulled off by a Belgian visual artist and music producer. This Artist creates incredible optical illusion with just a pencil. He is called Ben Heine and known as the father of  ‘pencil vs camera’ Art. 

Ben Heine was born in 1983 in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, currently living and working in Brussels, Belgium. He is best known for his original series “Pencil vs camera”, “Digital Circlism” and “Flesh and Acrylic“. He invented and popularize the concept of  pencil vs camera in April 2010. 

Pencil vs Camera concept involves him taking a photograph and merging together with his hand-drawn sketches to produce an optical illusion. His combination of sketches and camera is indeed something we don’t see  everyday.

What’s so special about pencil vs camera? You have to understand that anybody can sketch and paint, but not everybody can come with these genius combinations. His Art works are nice and inspiring. From his art it shows he didn’t just wake up one morning and started sketching. It shows he spends lots of time behind the scene getting ideas and inspiration before working.

He has a strong connection with his optical illusion pencil drawings; passing  a message and a story to the viewers. Heine wrote: “I make art for people. I want them to dream and forget their daily troubles. Each new creation should tell a story and generate an intense emotion, like a poem, like a melody”.
