It’s always nice to see an artist’s unique talents showcased. Hamburg, Germany-based artist Chan Hwee Chong is definitely a talented artist, and his incredible spiral portraits were the subject of a commercial for Faber Castell art pens.
It is absolutely mind-boggling to think how Chong accomplishes these drawings. He incorporates texture and varied line thickness to create the kind of depth that is difficult to find in any pen drawing – let alone one drawn in spiral. Besides Girl With a Pearl Earring, Chong also recreated Mona Lisa and Van Gogh’s Self Portrait for the Faber Castell campaign.
