Valentin van der Meulen – Erased Portraits

Amazing!

These detailed large scale charcoal drawings by the French artist Valentin van der Meulen are a true beauty. The particular thing that transforms this artworks into something more interesting, is the “final act”.

Once the drawing is completed, Valentin partially erases what he has done, creating a disappearing image. This concept suits very well with the internet era and the digital memory in general.
