This crazy good artist makes his tools of the trade into tiny perfect pencil art.
Almost all artists have used pencils as part of their creative process, however, Chien Chu Lee from Taiwan surpasses that description as he’s a pencil carving artist. The self-taught artist mastered this unique form of art and has since been carving up pencils for the last six years.
In his latest work that has captured the attention of the world as he astoundingly carves alphabetical letters out of the lead used in mechanical pencils without breaking any of it. What makes his work even more remarkable is the fact that his canvas, which is the lead sticks in pencil, are far thinner than traditional lead pencils used by other artists.
Before this astonishing pencil art, Lee had been making mini figurines and kid toys using bamboo stick. He considers his steady hands a blessing and has created near-exact replicas of the Great Wall of China and Dubai’s Burj Al Arab to name a few. His amusing artworks are not only intricate, but are also unique in every imaginable way.
