Intense charcoal portraits experiment with shadow and light

Young British illustrator Dylan Andrews portrays strong emotion through his use of shadow and light. His charcoal portraits depend on various shades of grey to create lifelike representations of people, adding pattern and texture to build the depth. The artworks present ambiguity, offering an image that is beyond the page, and a reflection from an unknown object, be it wire fence or trees. The stunning works capture such dramatic intensity but combine a surreal edge as well, making them even more impressive.
