Marcello Barenghi (previously here) is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Milan (Italy). He has an amazing skill at taking ordinary objects and turning them into cool artworks. From a young age, he showed promise in his beautiful drawings. At the age of 9, he attempted to replicate Leonardo’s Mona Lisa. In my books, that’s crazy, and when I was nine, my drawing technique consisted of coloring in lines. His passion for hyper-realism leads him on a journey to his weapon of drawing choice, the colored pencil. He says, “I discovered the colored pencils, but I immediately felt the need to find out a different technique that would allow me to cover large areas, shading, and avoid the grainy look of colored pencils.”

Marcello Barenghi really takes “coloring in” to the next level with his amazingly realistic drawings. Below are just a few of his amazing works. To see more visit: Marcello Barenghi – hyper-realistic drawings & Youtube Channel and as always thanks for reading.
